The celebration of the 100th anniversary of establishing the original Larchmont Boulevard shopping block will take place beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 24 (the day originally planned for the traditional Larchmont Family Fair that has, like last year, been postponed, according to Larchmont Boulevard Association [LBA] president John Winther of Coldwell Banker Realty). Winther says there still will be significant celebratory opportunities that same Sunday — just with a smaller crowd and with the street not fully closed.

At a stage near the flagpole and Wilshire Rotary clock, in front of the Sunday Farmers Market at 209 N. Larchmont Blvd., LBA and community leaders will gather with neighbors to cut the birthday cake. Also being planned is a tree planting for the empty sidewalk spot near Tailwaggers at 147 N. Larchmont Blvd. Organizers say, “Come celebrate Larchmont on the 24th!”
