Torrance Annual Halloween Carnival

As I mentioned a couple months ago, I volunteered to help give the Torrance Rose Float Association (TRFA) some additional exposure to assist them in their fundraising efforts so the City of Torrance can be represented at the next Tournament of Roses Parade. A couple nights ago I heard that the TRFA needed volunteers to run their booth at the 2013 Torrance Annual Halloween Carnival, so Tanya stepped up to take care of their booth for a couple hours. Judging by the photos, she had as much fun as the kids playing the game.

The City of Torrance no longer provides public funds for entering a float in the Rose Parade, but relies on private donations to the Torrance Rose Float Association, a 501(c)(3) organization. The TRFA is looking for help with many activities that need to be done throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering help or want to make donations, please visit the TRFA website at http://www.torrancerosefloat.com/.

The Halloween Carnival was held at Charles Wilson Community Park, 2200 Crenshaw Boulevard in Torrance, on October 31, 2013. Continue reading

Street Toys Car Show at Alpine Village Oktoberfest

Sunday afternoon I headed over to Alpine Village in Torrance for the Street Toys Back to School Car Show which was held in conjunction with Alpine Village’s Oktoberfest. Sunday is family day at Oktoberfest so there were lots of families wandering around admiring the artwork on the show entries.

From my understanding, Street Toys is governing body as it were for the local car clubs; so this event included many different car clubs covering a wide spectrum of car styles with trophies for every class. They had 2-door cars, 4-door cars, mini-trucks, full sized trucks, imports, classics, motorcycles and anything else you can think of. The car show was a fundraiser to help provide back to school necessities for underprivileged students throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District. Street Toys and all the participants should be congratulated for holding a successful event for a good cause.

Alpine Village is located at 833 W. Torrance Boulevard in Torrance. Their 46th Annual Oktoberfest runs every weekend through October with Friday and Saturday evenings being adults (21+) only and Sunday afternoons being open to all. You can find my Oktoberfest photos on CraftBeerGuy.com. Continue reading

Meatballs & Bingo fundraiser for the Torrance Rose Float Association

Last night, the Torrance Rose Float Association (TRFA) held a fundraiser, Meatballs & Bingo, at the Order Sons of Italy in America hall in Torrance. The event was held to help raise the money required to enter a float in the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade and featured a spaghetti dinner then some rousing games of Bingo with potential door prizes for the winners. I have to admit, I have never played Bingo beyond the standard game we used to play as children. I had no idea that Bingo had so many variations, but there are many and several of them were played last night.

The City of Torrance no longer provides public funds for entering a float in the parade, which usually costs about $250,000; but rather now relies on private donations to the Torrance Rose Float Association, a 501(c)(3) organization. The TRFA is looking for help with many activities that need to be done throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering help or want to make donations, please visit the TRFA website at http://www.torrancerosefloat.com/. Continue reading
