Fiesta Hermosa
This weekend Hermosa Beach will once again host it's 3-day arts festival formerly known as Fiesta del Artes. It's going to be a hot one, so the cool breezes will make this festival the place to be. The arts and crafts on sale are irresistable, so bring money. The food vendors are not that impressive; I prefer the local restaurants, and the beer garden really gets out of control. That can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending. Sat, Sun Mon, Sept 1-3, 2007, 10 am - 6 pm Hermosa Avenue and Pier Avenue, Hermosa Beach

(More festivals after the jump)
