Get your blankets and lawn chairs ready! It’s almost the fourth of July and San Marino is once again hosting it’s annual Independence Day celebration in Lacy Park. This year’s program promises to be as much fun as ever. The park will open at 8 a.m. and will feature food booths, a fun zone, a community parade, stage entertainment, and a fireworks display at 9 p.m.
There are a few details to be aware of to enjoy the celebration this year. The Virginia Road entrance will open first thing in the morning. However, the St. Albans Road entrance will not open until 3 p.m. Space can be reserved with blankets and chairs but ropes and stakes are not allowed. In order to enter the park, each person will need to have a wristband. Wristbands can be purchased on the fourth for $20 (children two and under are free). Additionally you can pre-purchase bands from now through July 3rd at a discount. Non-residents will pay $15, while residents with id or utility bill can purchase the bands for $5 each. Wristbands are for sale at the Department of Recreation, City Hall and Crowell Public Library. For more information, please call 626-943-2627.
We will see you there!
Just because San Marino is a quiet (but beautiful) suburban community doesn’t mean that we don’t have style. As reported in the San Marino Patch, San Marino was recently named the 25th most fashionable town in America. As one might expect, there are a number of California towns making the list including #1, Newport Coast. While San Marino did not beat out Beverly Hills, it’s notable that we ranked higher than Malibu, West Hollywood and Santa Monica. Criteria for the study was the percentage of households that had made at least four transactions at top-end designer merchants in the last thirty months. At 7.57% of households meeting the mark by their definition of fashion conscious, San Marino comes in at five times the national average.
