Even though LA is a big place, we have always loved the community of LA Crescenta and the surrounding area. We love to get involved and support our community.


The La Canada community is the place for so many wonderful things – but the best one of all?   The Fiesta Days Parade down Foothill Blvd.  Thousands of people line both sides of the street and dozens of groups, floats, trucks and bands travel down the street as the hometown crowd, parents and friends cheer.  It’s a classic parade with a small-town feel.


Every year since 1996, Los Gringos Locos has entered the parade with a float.  Each year has it’s won flavor and this picture is from our 3rd Ever parade – 1998.  Our first ever cater truck pulled a flat bed full of hay bales and family and local kids having a ball.

The parade 2001!!  A New Cater Truck Odyssey.  Brand new, custom painted-by-hand cater truck debuts in the 2001 Fiesta Days parade.  Saving the world 1 taco at a time is a long slow process.
