Topanga Days is right around the corner and it’s going to be well worth the price of admission to support your local community center. As usual, the event will be held at the Topanga Community Center (TCC), 1440 N. Topanga Canyon Boulevard, from 10 a.m.–7 p.m., Sunday, May 29th, and Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th, and features five fabulous bands throughout both days, as well as hilariously fun games between each set. (find Band & Game lineups online) THE PARADE On Monday, May 30th, the Topanga Days Memorial Day Parade will feature a team of Grand Marshals, who made a huge impact on our community during the COVID-19 lockdown: Inara George, Jake Kasdan, Jed Levy and Kristina Rocco Levy. These outstanding community members stepped up with the TCC and Canyon Sages to feed and help our community’s seniors and those in need for over a year when the COVID pandemic hit. With the help of many loyal volunteers, they donated and delivered 17,000 meals, more than 1,000 food boxes and made more than 100 vaccination appointments for those struggling to get vaccinated. Their commitment to serve Topangans in need during the lockdown, as well as provide tasty dishes from Rocco’s Cucina was truly amazing. For this effort, and for decades of service to the Topanga community, the TCC chooses to distinguish them as our Parade Grand Marshals this year. The Parade starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. at Pine Tree Circle and ends at approximately 10 a.m. Floats begin lining up at Pine Tree Circle at 7 a.m., and Topanga Canyon Blvd. is closed to all traffic from 7 a.m.–10:30/11 a.m. There will be a blockade at Mulholland Drive and the Boulevard restricting traffic to Pine Tree Circle. Anyone traveling from the valley to PCH should plan to take Old Topanga Canyon Road. For information about the parade, the wonderful businesses that sponsored it this year and to register a float: topangadays.topangacommunitycenter.org/parade/. SPONSORS Topanga Days is a non-profit fundraiser and an expensive event to host. We were fortunate to have a number of sponsors eager to support what has become a canyon tradition.
