On a sunny Monday, hundreds of La Cañada Flintridge residents braved 80-degree heat to take in the colorful Fiesta Days parade after honoring La Cañada's fallen members of the military at a somber Memorial Day service.
Residents turned out to line Foothill Boulevard for the parade, which turned the city's main thoroughfare from Cornishon to Gould avenues into a colorful procession of classic cars, fire trucks and proud marchers.
Parade dignitaries included elected officials and, as grand marshals, the current and past chairs of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors Fiesta Days and is celebrating its 100th year.
Terry Walker, the 2012 La Cañadan of the Year, and Lauren Barsamian, Miss La Cañada Flintridge, and her court also were featured.
The parade capped a weekend that included a bridge tournament at the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge, a French toast breakfast and car show, a free movie in the park, a barbecue, open houses at Lanterman House and the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn., a fireworks display and the annual Crescenta-Cañada YMCA run.
