Canoga Park Tourism Video

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

For today's video lunch we examine a piece that attempts the wicked-harsh-yet-enthusiastically-negative approach to attracting tourists to San Fernando Valley's Canoga Park neighborhood. Says the creator, "Growing up in Canoga Park was a gift. My dream came true when the Canoga Park Tourism Board found my 'Video Production and Car-wash Service' ad on Craigslist, and they actually hired me to make this tourism video. I hope they like it!" They didn't.

Do not mess with Canoga Park. One word folks, Rocketdyne.
