May 22, 2015 12:00 PM by News Staff

Friday marks the 100th anniversary of the Lassen Peak eruption and Lassen Volcanic National Park is ready to celebrate.

The park has a handful of events planned to celebrate the Lassen Peak eruptions that brought Lassen to the world stage and helped pave the way for the establishment of the park on August 9, 1916.

"We have a weekend full of activities planned, from a commemoration celebration to campfire talks," stated Superintendent Steve Gibbons. "We are excited to share stories of Lassen's eruptive past with our visitors over the Memorial Day weekend."

Information on the eruption celebration, including the schedule of special events, can be found on the park's website here.

Action News Now Reporter Joe Moeller will have a report of Lassen's past, and what can be expected in the future tonight at 5 and 6 on Action News Now.
