I just came back from San Marino's Lacy Park after saving a nice spot for this evening's fireworks celebration. We got there around 7:55 am and the line was one of the longest that I've seen over the years. It was snaking all the way around Virginia Road.

The first person in line waiting for the gates to open at 8 am was Steve Morgan. He got there at 5 am to get his coveted spot for this evening's festivities. I was very lucky this morning because a friend of mine was there at 7:15, patiently stood in line and was able to save my family a spot right next to his under the Eucalyptus tree on the North side of the park. Lesson learned: Have lots of friends!
The gates were opened at 8 am and everyone calmly walked into the park and then just as calmly - NOT! - picked up speed on their way to their favorite spot.
Honestly, if you get to Lacy Park a bit after 8 am, you'd be okay as well. There were plenty of nice spots available still.
Here are some of the pictures that I took of Lacy Park this morning:
Derek Barker was there collecting signatures from San Marino home owners for his Eagle Scout Project. He is taking on the challenge of creating a Dog Park in San Marino's Lacy Park. Derek needs to collect 1,200 signatures and hopes to have the Dog Park on the East side of the Park not too far from the tennis courts. His idea is to have the Dog Park separated for small and large dogs.
If you are a San Marino resident and want to support Derek in this initiative, please email me at Irina@Irina4RealEstate.com so that Derek can collect your signature. He needs our support!
