Once-in-a-Century Celebration Underway

About 400 people gathered at Friday evening after months of preparation by an ad-hoc committee for the first event in a weekend-long celebration of the date 9-10-11.
Those numbers also happen to be the city's zip code and an occurrance that only happens once every 100 years. Local residents and community leaders came together for an evening of live music, gourmet food trucks, and a chance to get to know their neighbors even better.
The festivities continue today when several of the city's art and cultural institutions from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to Descanso Gardens will open their doors for free to showcase all that La Cañada has to offer. Sunday will wrap up the community-wide event with a non-denominational, non-political 9/11 memorial service at the  to commemorate the tenth anniversary of that unforgettable day.
