Fairs, Festivals + Fiestas — End of Summer Parties With Pardee

Just because summer is coming to a close, doesn’t mean the party has to end! We had an amazing time at Culver City’s Fiesta La Ballona last weekend and loved supporting such an incredibly fun and festive community celebration as an official sponsor. We enjoyed delicious food, wild rides, and, of course, meeting our neighbors.We were at this year’s end-of-summer party all weekend and it was a huge hit.
