We heard parking is limited at Fiesta Hermosa and they have shuttles running back and forth from the fiesta. When we realized we live closer than the shuttle stop, we decided to make it an adventure. We got Baby Awesome and Kona ready to go and we walked from our house! Here’s a snap I took from our walk:
When we got to Fiesta Hermosa we met up with the team at the Verizon Fios at the #FiosConnectsSoCal booth.The Verizon Fios team know what’s up. It was opening weekend for college football and they had four tv’s set up to play the games. They had college football games and the US Open going. They were also handing out sunglasses and football koozies. Score!
After our walk we were all pretty hungry. They had an entire area dedicated to food vendors so we grabbed some lunch. Baby Awesome was also super hungry so I fed her some mashed sweet potatoes that we brought for her.
After we fueled up we walked around and checked out all the local vendors. There were some great photographers there who had taken gorgeous pictures all around the South Bay. I wanted to take some pics, but most of them had a no photo policy (and understandably so).
One of my favorite things was seeing all the cute baby clothes. One of our favorite stores, Sol Baby, had a tent and they were selling their super cute baby Trucker hats. We also met a local clothing designer who creates the most adorable dresses for babies. They are called Jessie’s Girl Couture. They were so cute and I had to get one for Baby Awesome and get a picture:
We’ve been going through a heatwave here in SoCal so it was pretty hot even for the beach. We found a vendor who was selling popsicles and it was pretty much the best thing ever.
We really enjoyed getting to meet some of the local health and fitness gyms here in the South Bay, too. We talked to folks from OrangeTheory Fitness, AfterBurn, and I Love Kickboxing who are all new fitness studios in the area. Pretty sweet.
Later on in the day we went back to the Verizon Fios booth to check out the start of the Notre Dame vs Texas football game. Kona especially liked it because she got to hang out in the shade. I think her paws were hurting from our long walk and the hot sun. We made sure to give her lots of water and love.
While we were hanging out in the shade, Jenny from Verizon told me about the new custom TV package they are coming out with. Since we are Verizon Fios customers (hello, fast internet!) they looked up our account to see if the custom package of picking certain channels would work for us. Turns out we already have most of them!
We also ran into our good friends Tuyet and Cherisse who came down to Fiesta for the day. It’s always such a treat to see them:
After we said our goodbyes we began our walk back home. We had such a great time at Fiesta Hermosa with the #FiosConnectsSoCal team. We’re already planning more weekend walks to the pier. I am pretty sure Fiesta Hermosa will likely become a tradition in our family.
