Some December Announcements
Sorry the blog has been so silent, but I have been lending my opinion and efforts to elsewhere than the blog. As we are coming up on a big weekend here in Pomona, I can't wait one more day to post.
Saturday, December 1 will be the annual Holiday Lane Parade down Holt. They start lining up near the 99 cents store and east from there. I assume they will do it the same this year. It's generally more pleasant to stand on the 99 cent store side of the street if it's a sunny day. The parade runs from 10 a.m. to noon. In between the Pomona Day Laborers and Victory Outreach floats will be bands from high schools I've never heard of and this year's grand marshall will be David Allen of Daily Bulletin fame. (David Allen is not to be confused with Allen David of Inland Empire Weekly fame. But that's another post, unless David beats me to the punch...)
Later on Saturday is the Holiday Lane Festival over on Huntington Drive, between Holt and McKinley. Plenty of games, rides and activities for the kids. This is a very well populated event and one we have always had fun at, tho I've never seen anyone else from Lincoln Park there. I believe this was the last place I ever saw the late Mayor Cortez. What a great guy he was!
NEXT Friday, Saturday and Sunday is Pomona Garage Sale Weekend. I don't have much to offer since I've recently started selling on ebay, but I'll be out there trying to sell some odds and ends on Saturday.
Yes, Big and I will be continuing our tradition of attending the parade. I really urge anyone who has not gone to go. It is very....well Pomona. Look for us somewheres around the 99 cent store. From there, we will get a rare public look at the local politicos, as they dare to come out from behind their six-foot-front-yard fences (yes, another post about a certain political figure in town).
Oh, and Saturday, December 1 will also be the annual progressive dinner for Pomona Heritage. Click the link on the side bar for more details, or ask it here and maybe John Clifford will be by. THE END
