Inaugural Harvest Resource Fair to provide community with career advancement opportunities

Community members looking for help with their resumes or in need of head shots for their portfolios will have access to these services and more during the inaugural Harvest Resource Festival at MacArthur Park on Saturday.

Co-hosted by the cannabis dispensary LB Green Room and the neighborhood group AOC7 (Anaheim, Orange, Cherry and 7th streets), the event is aimed at connecting the community to resources from government or local organizations.

The activities include a job resource fair from 9 a.m. to noon where community members can get free head shots and help with their resumes. There will also be opportunities for the re-entry community, including those who need help changing their records.

In the afternoon, from noon to 4:30 p.m., families will be able to enjoy a “spooky maze” and “creepy crawly booth,” according to organizers. Activities include pumpkin decorating opportunities and a backpack giveaway. There will also be a Dia de los Muertos Altar Walk of Remembrance and an Aztec blessing at noon.

DJ Daniel Jamezzz will be spinning music throughout the event while Shy But Flyy is scheduled to perform at 1:30 p.m., followed by Tomasina at 2:30 p.m.

MacArthur Park is located at 1321 E. Anaheim St.
