Fiesta Hermosa 

@ Hermosa Beach Pier

Saturday, May 24 2014
Kick-start the summer with a trip to the beach. And while you're there, why not pay a visit to one of the largest arts & crafts fairs in Southern California? For 42 years, Fiesta Hermosa has been celebrated every Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend. This year, the festival is packing downtown Hermosa Beach with more than 300 painters, photographers and jewelers, plus many more artists and their handicrafts. Stop by the Charity Beer & Wine Garden, where "celebrities" such as the beach city's mayor could serve you a glass, or enjoy the live music playing throughout the fair - one of the two stages will feature tribute bands performing songs by The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, while the other will blast musical genres from rock & roll to zydeco. And don't worry if you work up an appetite after that ride down the 30-foot slide at the Kiddie Carnival; the food court offers 18 food choices, from Greek and Thai to tri-tip sandwiches. We hear the roasted corn is to die for. 1 Pier Ave, Hermosa Beach; Sat.-Mon., May 24-26, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; beer garden open until 7 p.m.; free. (310) 376-0951,
Sat., May 24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2014 (Expired: 05/24/14)
