THE BUZZ THIS MONTH!
Before we begin with the upcoming events, we just want to pause to say how proud we all were of our community last month at the Hometown Parade | Time Capsule and Centennial Plaza Dedication at El Prado Park. The day was filled with support from residents to visitors to our business community. What an exciting and fun-filled day. Thank you Torrance!
October marks our twelfth edition of the Torrance Centennial eNewsletter! This month we celebrate with our biggest event yet, the Birthday Bash at Charles H. Wilson Park! The Bash is Sunday, October 28th beginning at 10:00 a.m. and will cap off a yearlong commemoration of the City of Torrance's Centennial. There will be gourmet food trucks, community stage performances, vendor booths and much, much more! Trust us you don't want to miss out on this exciting once-in-a-lifetime event!
We've got other cool events this month too, including the Torrance High Classic & Custom Car Show on October 13th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will certainly be a winner! Also, October 13th and 14th is Art in the Park by the Torrance Artist Guild. Come and join us for a Gallery of Fine Art Show.
Next up, the Torrance Historical Society & Museum has two events planned.
Relive the City's Opening Day on October 4th beginning at 6:30 pm at the Museum and join the Historical Society again for the Original Fall Tour of Historic Homes on October 13th and 14th beginning at 11 a.m. A rich glimpse into Torrance's past!
Although the Plaza has been dedicated, you can still purchase a Commemorative Personalized Brick at the Centennial Plaza and El Prado Park. Purchase today and your Brick will be added to the more than 800 already installed! Your support will offset the actual cost of construction and you will be forever a part of Torrance history.
And don't forget, now is your chance to enter the weekly Where's Jared Photo Location Contest? Each Monday, by 9 a.m. a new photo will be posted here. All you will need to do is figure out where the picture was taken, and then sends an email to Centennial@TorranceCA.Gov with your best guess.
