The last weekend of May has arrived, and that can mean only one thing to true-blue La Cañadans: Fiesta Days are here.
This annual gift to the community from the folks at the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce and Community Assn. is a time when we meet up with one another in Memorial Park, at Lanterman House or along the Foothill Boulevard parade route to celebrate the fact that school's almost out and summer is about to unfold.
Over the long weekend there will be an outdoor breakfast, a car show, family movie night, a barbecue followed by a terrific fireworks display, the Y's Fiesta Run and the ever-popular parade, of which the decades-long joke is that half the community watches it from the sidewalk while the other half is in it. Our local museum will hold its annual open house on Sunday, and the city's summer concert series will get off to a rousing start Monday afternoon.
