As a professional real estate agent, one of the facets of my job is to be a raving fan for our community and all the wonderful things that living here has to offer.
Case in point: Fiesta La Ballona. Currently held on the last weekend in August every year, this extravaganza of carnival rides, food booths, live entertainment and beer garden—to name just a few of the features—is Culver City's "Pièce de résistance." I make it a point to let all of the potential new residents I run into in the course of my work know all about the and what a great community event it is.
This is an that my children have looked forward to every year since they can remember. We do not book family vacations around this time, because we all want to make sure we are here in town to enjoy all that it has to offer.
Recently, I attended the launch planning meeting for next year’s event at restaurant—corner of Culver Boulevard and Canfield Avenue, awesome food—where a dedicated group of volunteers began the process of shaping the event for next year.
I am always motivated by a group of volunteers coming together for the good of the community, and this night was no exception as—under the masterful guidance of Mr. Culver City Mike Cohen—the group wrestled with how to continue to improve the event, while maintaining its small town charm.
This is where you can help. The commitee would love to know your thoughts, so please take a little time to answer our poll question and help us understand what the community would like to see at Fiesta La Ballona 2012. The more we can hear from the residents, the better we can make this a wonderful weekend-long event that continues to bring the community together in a fun and safe way.
