The city of La Cañada was awash in red, white and blue last weekend as thousands of foothill residents turned out to participate in the 37th annual Memorial Weekend Fiesta Days celebration.
"We don't have attendance figures yet," said Fiesta Days Chairman Barbara Marshall. "But it looked to equal if not exceed last year in terms of participation. We are thrilled."
Three days of activities included some of the city's longest-running traditions, including fireworks in Memorial Park, the Fiesta Days Run and the Memorial Day parade.
The celebration kicked off Saturday with the French toast and strawberries breakfast, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada-A.M., and the accompanying vintage car show.
"It's fun to see families come to the breakfast and see all the other generations interacting with one another," said Rosemary Hook, a member of the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada-A.M. and chair of the Community Breakfast. "Fiesta Days just re-emphasizes the reason why so many people move to La Cañada. There's such a strong sense of community, and people are so giving of their time and money."
