Podley Properties agents love their communities, and nothing exemplifies that like the way that they went out to celebrate on the Fourth of July! Below are photos from some of those celebrations. We are already looking forward to next year!
SIERRA MADRE Fourth of July Parade
PASADENA Americafest at the Rose Bowl
This year’s Americafest was just as grand as ever! Along with the incredible fireworks display, the 91st annual show’s pyrotechnics honored the 20-year anniversary of NASA’s Pathfinder mission. That spacecraft was designed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, less than 10 minutes from the Rose Bowl.
MONROVIA Fourth of July Celebration
This year Monrovia’s Fourth of July Concert & Fireworks show featured live music by Night Owl, a decorating contest and of course, a fireworks show! Photos courtesy of Pasadena Star News.
GLENDORA Area Community Celebrations
Podley Properties’ Rana Madain visited a few of her community’s Fourth of July celebrations, including the annual N. La Ramada party, and the Santa Maria/Hacienda celebration.
