Los Angeles celebrates its 235th birthday next month.

To mark the occasion in advance, some Angelenos on Saturday re-enacted the walk of the original Pobladores who founded the little pueblo of Los Angeles on Sept. 4, 1781.

The nine-mile trek begins at the San Gabriel Mission and goes to the El Pueblo state historical site at Olvera Street, just as the city's first citizens did after they arrived from Mexico.
