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

Saturday at the Torrance Farmers Market

There has been a lot of healthy activity in our household lately, and not just Tanya’s miraculous change in her well-being; we have also recently released a book of juicing recipes, “Faces of Juicing, Visual Juicing Recipes.” When the book was released Tanya suggested that she wanted to go on a juice fast; I just tried to change the subject when she brought it up. Since Tanya has recently learned that most of her health issues appeared to be the result of a profound Vitamin B7 deficiency, otherwise known as Biotinidase Deficiency, she started taking Biotin a week ago and is a new person today. This change has resulted in her appreciating juicing even more and has strengthened her resolve to increase her juicing at least for a couple of weeks. Since I know when I am beat, I decided to head over to the Torrance Farmers Market on Saturday morning and see what was available.

There is nothing like going to a farmers market to make one appreciate living in Southern California. So many vibrant colors and good smells; we have it all. The Torrance Farmers Market is held every Saturday at Wilson Park, located at 2200 Crenshaw Boulevard between Sepulveda Boulevard and Carson Street from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM, on Tuesday and Saturday. I have not gone on a Tuesday yet, but Saturdays are definitely fun for the entire family as there is not only fresh produce available but there are over twenty vendors selling cooked foods as well. Take the entire family, enjoy some good food, live music and that great California sunshine. Continue reading

Photos of the Torrance Centennial Birthday Bash

These photos are from the Torrance Centennial Birthday Bash which was held Sunday at Wilson Park in Torrance, CA. I have to say, this was a very fun family event that included arts and crafts, live music, games for the kids, food trucks, a petting zoo and culminated with the release of 100 doves and a parachutist team that came down with a centennial flag along with flags of Torrance, California, and an American flag. It was a beautiful day and those that took advantage of it seemed to have a great time.

There seems to be some discrepancy as to whether the City of Torrance was founded on October 24, 1912 or October 28, 1912 but it is clear that we had much better weather today than they had 100 years ago. Torrance has grown a lot in the last 100 years and I am sure the next 100 will be just as prosperous; someone will have to update this for me as I probably will not be around. Continue reading
