Children's Day was traditionally celebrated in Los Angeles this weekend where children and their families from around Los Angeles were treated to "Cri-Cri in Concert" featuring characters created by Francisco Gabilondo Soler in 1934 which have come to be known across Latin America and the United States, reports the Friends of L. Ron Hubbard Foundation.

The Way to Happiness, a non religious moral code, includes such precepts as "Love and Help Children," "Be Industrious" and "Try to Treat Others as You Would Want Them to Treat You."

Children's Day was celebrated with a "Cri-Cri in Concert" performed by children of all ages from the Los Angeles Theatre Academy at the Elysian Park Amphitheatre to several hundred guests. Children and their parents were treated to songs, acts and plays based on the fictional character "Cri-Cri" in celebration of Mexico's Children's Day.

Directed by Alejandra Flores of the Los Angeles Theatre Academy, a cast of over twenty children and professional actors performed twelve different songs from the musical legacy of “Cri Cri” to full capacity at the Elysian Park Amphitheatre. Special Guest Francisco S Gabilondo, 1st Grandson of the creator of "Cri-Cri" (Francisco Gabilondo Soler) was presented with a Certificate of Recognition from the Speaker of the Assembly for the California State Legislature, John A. Perez for “…sharing your family’s legacy and love of music with the Los Angeles Theatre Academy and the children of Los Angeles.”

Francisco S Gabilondo and the "Cri Cri" character were on hand for photographs and signed copies of a special custom edition of "The Way to Happiness" featuring the "Cri Cri" character on the cover of book for all in attendance.
