In spite of sweltering heat last Sunday, outdoor events across the Southland were well-attended by families eager to enjoy the last days of summer vacation. Our family made a tour of two popular festivals.
In Montrose the Harvest Festival farmers brought fruit, vegetables and flowers, but the organizers added extras especially for children. As we exited the car, we bumped into the Schechter family from Pasadena in the parking lot near Market Street. Cathy carried baby daughter Kyra, while Steve toted bags of produce, and a gorgeous bouquet of giant yellow sunflowers.
On Market Sreet, just below Honolulu, toddlers took hesitant steps inside a small fenced enclosure, reaching out their tiny hands to baby goats. A few yards away, volunteers from the Glendale Humane Society showed off three smart, healthy dogs.
