Thanks to the organizers of the Harvest Festival in Kenneth Village on Saturday. The kids had a wonderful time and it was wonderful to see the families out enjoying a beautiful day in their neighborhood. Nothing cuter than a bunch of kids in Halloween costumes! It was great to see the creativity some of our residents have. Dr. Who and his killer robot stole the show. Fun was had by all and we are so happy to have a gem like Kenneth Village within walking distance from our home.

If you’re like most people, you probably dangle a bit from time to time. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Even people familiar with the concept of dangling participles can let a dangler slip into the occasional email or memo. In fact, most of the professional writers I edit are vulnerable to one particular type of dangler — one so common and so subtle that, lately, I’ve been reconsidering whether it needs fixing at all. Here’s an example: “A popular annual event, the Harvest Festival’s main stage will feature live musical acts.” Here’s another: “An ideal hiking spot, the canyon’s gorgeous scenery astounds visitors.” To understand what, exactly, is dangling here, it’s worth pausing for a short refresher.

As the annual Harvest Festival kicked off at Mark Keppel Elementary School Friday, dozens of students, parents and community members filled the school's two-level playground to take part in activities that ranged from a penny toss to an inflatable-rock climb. The event — put on by the Mark Keppel Foundation — aims to raise money for the school, much of which goes into arts and music programs, said Joanne Pingry, who volunteered at the event. "It's a reason to get everybody here at school to have fun and raise money," she said.

Children -- and parents -- have a great time at inaugural Harvest Festival at Mark Keppel Elementary School. The faint smell of Kettle Korn and the sound of children laughing wafted through humid blue-gray skies as hundreds of children and parents enjoyed the inaugural fund-raising Harvest Festival at Mark Keppel Elementary School Friday. A rubberized rock wall was the biggest attraction. Silly String was the theme. It was everywhere: lime green and purple, orange, yellow, blue and some colors that might not have names yet. Some even seemed to glow.

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.
