As summer 2019 concludes, the Fiesta La Ballona Committee is continuing with the Culver City tradition of putting on one fantastic Party in the Park, better known as our very own Fiesta La Ballona from Friday, Aug. 23 to Sunday, Aug. 25 at Veterans Park at 4117 Overland Ave., Culver City.
The festivities kick off at 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 23, with both food and carnival rides opening to the public until 10 p.m. Things get picked right back up at 10 a.m. on the 24th as rides are reopened to the public until the fiesta’s 10 p.m. closing time. Those looking for an early brunch on Saturday will have to wait until food vendors open at 11 a.m.
Plan to arrive at the Fiesta a little earlier on Sunday, as the curtain is drawn down on the closing day a few hours early. Both carnival rides and food vendors starting at 10 a.m., but vendors will be closing down at 7 p.m. the rides finish their yearly stint at Veterans Park at 8 p.m.
There will also be plenty of other entertainment present, thanks in part to the support that the Fiesta has received from the community.
According to Marcus G. Tiggs, the Fiesta Sponsorship Subcommittee Chair, the generosity of sponsors for this year’s event is the best we’ve seen in a long time, and in no small part, contributes to making Fiesta La Ballona the Westside’s best Party in the Park.
