You know it's the end of summer when Fiesta Hermosa is back for the Labor Day weekend. I love this mix of art and kitsch... it's just so Hermosa and so beachy. The Fair runs Saturday through Monday.
Shuttle buses run from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm from Northrup Grumman at Manhattan Beach Blvd and Doolittle Drive. Street parking is very limited so go early if you want to drive you car.. and be aware that parking meters are only good for a few hours. Putting in extra money won't save you from a ticket if you are over the hour limit..
The Fiesta Hermosa bike valet program is why a bike ride down the Strand might just be the best way to get to the festivities. You can ride your bike, and park in the guarded lot on the sand just south of the Hermosa Pier. Hermosa Cyclery will valet park your bike and offer air for tires and on-site diagnostic checkups while you enjoy the festival. The lot is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily.
