Eagle Rock July 3 Celebration

An elegant and fun fireworks display


Celebrating Eagle Rock’s 100th year, the free fireworks display at Eagle Rock Park brought the community together with a big lovely bang. It seemed like the whole town turned out--we had to park many blocks away and hike in to the park. Ronny and the Classics played some good old Rock and Roll. There were booths staffed by the various Eagle Rock civic groups from TERA to the Chamber of Commerce to the Eagle Rock High Boosters. Classic cars parked on the field provided more browsing opportunities. There were food booths for everything from funnel cakes and kettle corn to Chinese food. We had some very tasty Argentinian grilled sausages spiced with ChimmiChurri sauce served in a roll with fresh salad and rice.

The weather couldn’t have been better: not too hot yet clear and balmy.


The crowd was mellow and friendly with lots of kids, lots of families. We all oohed and aahed at the fireworks which were at least 15 minutes of colors and swizzles and sparklers and booms. The crowd cheered and celebrated and then we all walked back to our cars. Happy 3rd of July, Eagle Rockers!

Kickoff Event for Eagle Rock's Centennial Celebration

Eagle Rock’s Centennial Year Begins...February 26 was a classic Eagle Rock day. Kickoff events started at 2 pm at the Center for the Arts, which has become the community center for our hometown within the great City of Los Angeles. Beginning with family-oriented events like the Dahlia Elementary School program and ranging through the Eagle Rock High Latin Jazz band and the Eagle Rock Jazz Quartet, the room was packed with folks of all ages.

Several community groups had booths including TERA (The Eagle Rock Association) promoting their fundraiser Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and their plan to slow down Colorado Blvd and save lives. The Centennial committee and Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society had great Eagle Rock stuff for sale from $5 calendars to mugs that we can buy online beginning next week. Treepeople has organized Saturday, March 26 for tree planting along Colorado Blvd and April 30 for tree planting along York Blvd in Highland Park. Register for tree care and tree planting at www.treepeople.org. Linda Allen told us about ERCPR, the group that has been working to improve the sights we see in the commercial corridor.

Every kind of group and individual was there celebrating the hundredth year of Eagle Rock. It was a great program from the kid events to Eric Warren’s presentation of the history of the buildings in Eagle Rock to the Dahlia cocktails and the unique performance by Morganne, our very own local chanteuse. Hors d’ouerves were served by the Eagle Rock High Key Club. Besides the tickets sold for the cocktails and wine, raffle tickets for prizes donated by local merchants helped defray the cost of the day and to add a bit to the Centennial kitty. Our local elected officials came with encouraging speeches and certificates of recognition for about half the people in the room.

I applaud the hard work of all the volunteers who made this day so special, and am so glad I was one of the diverse, eclectic, and friendly crowd that showed up to take part in the day.

Next up, this Friday, March 4, is Eagle Rock Day at the Los Angeles City Council Chambers beginning at 10 am at 200 N Spring St, 90012. RSVP to 323-254-5295 by Tuesday, March 1 to make parking arrangements. Attendees are asked to wear green if possible.
