Friday, October 28, 2011

On Saturday October 29, 2011 dignitaries from the Republic of Peru and the City of Lake Forest Park invite the community to celebrate the unveiling of a bronze bust of Admiral Miguel Grau Seminario, renowned Peruvian and South American hero of the late 1800s.

The statue of Admiral Grau -- dubbed “el Caballero de los Mares” (the Gentleman of the Seas) for his chivalry in the Battle of Angamos in the War of the Pacific -- is being presented to the City in a gesture of international friendship and in recognition of the City’s 50th Anniversary.

This festive event will feature the United States Navy Band - Northwest Region, the Academia de Danzas Pemanas Peruvian dancers, and the presentation of the gift by the Consul General of Peru and the Naval Attaché to the Peruvian Embassy in Washington D.C.

The Consulate of Peru is located in the City of Lake Forest Park. The City and the Republic of Peru celebrated the Consulate’s centennial in 2008 with the City’s dedication of Republic of Peru Boulevard.
