Fiesta Days got off to a strong start Saturday with a car show and the unveiling of what will be La Cañada Flintridge's float in the 2013 Rose Parade.
A car show at Memorial Park was the first dazzler of the weekend at the park, which will host a fireworks show Sunday night, a Memorial Day service Monday, and serve as a fine spot to watch the launch of Monday's parade.
The La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. threw open its doors to educate the public about the float-making process.
There are just seven months to go to build the moving parts, start decorating and then add fresh flowers before heading down to Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena for the big day. For more photos, see A3.
