LGB, Fabulous Since 1923

Historic Terminal
Elinor Otto and city officials
LGB celebrated our 90th birthday in style on Tuesday, Nov. 26 with a holiday lighting ceremony and light hors d'oeuvres provided by Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach, and a cake given by JetBlue Airways. Guest appearances from city officials and our very own Elinor Otto, 94, one of the original Rosie the Riveters graced the crowd.

We were able to welcome arriving and departing travelers with food and beverages, modeled after a thanksgiving meal, a beautiful Christmas tree as well as some great music performed by Hedgehog Swing.

Airport Director, Mario Rodriguez, was joined by city officials in flipping the switch that turned on our stunning holiday tree.

Those of us at LGB, would like to thank all involved, from our wonderful sponsors to the those who stopped by to celebrate with us. LGB loves being a part of the Long Beach community and were excited to get to meet and celebrate with some of you that night.
