  • Manhattan Beach Christmas Fireworks Dec 2013!!!

    Posted on December 9th, 2013 acimetta No comments







    The Manhattan Beach Fireworks were last night on the Manhattan Beach Pier. It was tons of fun like always. Lots of friends and families camped out on the street singing Christmas carols, playing in the snow park, drinking hot chocolate, and having a blast. The fireworks show is always choreographed to Christmas music. It’s one of my favorite days of the year and it’s one of the reasons why I love where I live! #ManhattanBeachFireworks

    Come enjoy Fiesta Hermosa from May 28 – 30th from 10 am to 6 pm. Live music, food court, Wine & Beer Garden, tons of vendors & Kiddie Carnival! Parking is difficult to say the least so if you are a local, ride your bike. Hermosa offers free bike valet from 10 am – 6:30 pm. My favorites are the tri-tip, fresh lemonade and chocolate covered strawberries (if available).
