On Sept. 5, the Playa Vista Moms Group organized a family-focused gathering where children decorated their trikes, bikes, scooters or strollers to celebrate the Labor Day holiday.
In addition to a parade, local firefighters from Playa Vista’s Station #67 paid a visit and gave tours of their big red truck to curious little patriots.
Playa Vista Moms Group Vice President Natalie Shoemaker,
a mother of two, said events like this one offer a chance for the
Playa Vista community to “bring that small town feel to the big city, which is super unique for Los Angeles.”
Local dad Mark Yim brought his two-year-old son to the parade to meet other families and enjoy the park.
New Playa Vista residents Sabrina Coleman and her family just moved from New York.
“I think it’s great our kids can get together and meet their neighbors. This is the way to move to California when you know absolutely no one,” she said.
