These neighborhood events are what make our East Valley community a fun place to live. This Friday, make sure to get out and meet your neighbors.
Every July 4th the Valley Village Homeowners Association (VVHA) organizes a neighborhood parade to celebrate Independence Day. Neighbors are encouraged to make it a red, white and blue celebration and are welcome to create homemade floats and displays. You can wear red, white and blue and decorate your bikes, scooters, strollers, wagons, and leashed dogs. Neighborhood Council Valley Village (NCVV) hands out red, white and blue beaded necklaces and pays for two high school marching bands from North Hollywood and Birmingham Community Charter. Some neighbors decorate cars, golf carts, and make floats; however no one is allowed to ride in the back of trucks. The parade ends at Valley Village Park where the Association provides corn dogs, watermelon, cold drinks and cupcakes.
But you should fuel up before the Annual Valley Village 4th of July Parade. Join your neighbors for a FREE 4th of July Community Pancake Breakfast! They're serving up pancakes straight off the griddle, orange juice and coffee courtesy of Marie et Cie. The breakfast is co-Sponsored by Faith Presbyterian Church and Neighborhood Council Valley Village.
