La Cañada Flintridge civic and business leaders have made it clear that they want a more walkable shopping district, which is something of a challenge when your commercial zone is in truth a single bustling boulevard. But it appears that a key step toward that goal will be reached in the coming months with a revamp of the La Cañada Flintridge Town Center, the four-year-old shopping center at the busiest intersection in the city. This week city officials approved new, larger signs for the center, but more importantly, Town Center owners IDS Properties unveiled plans for a courtyard fountain and gathering area - the missing link in the center - as well as other people-pleasing accents.

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.
