Everyone Loves the Fiesta Days Parade

La Cañada Flintridge residents lined Foothill Boulevard on Memorial Day for the annual Fiesta Days parade. Dignitaries involved in the colorful, patriotic procession included Congressman Adam Schiff, state Sen. Anthony Portantino, state Assemblywoman Laura Friedman, L.A. County Sheriff’s Capt. Jim McDonnell as well as City Council and La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board members. This year’s parade — which featured the theme, “Bringing People Together” — began with a riderless horse, a tribute to local businessman and philanthropist Allen Lund, who recently died. Maureen Bond, the executive director of the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge, was the grand marshal.
