    Annual "Snow In Bixby Knolls" Street Fair Draws Crowds Along Atlantic Ave.

    (Dec. 4, 2005) -- As "forecast" by the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association and, there was snow in Bixby Knolls (mechanically generated but much fun for kids) on Sunday Dec. 4.

    Now in its 11th year, the annual "Snow in Bixby Knolls" street fair allowed LB kids to experience a cold, wet winter wonderland even on a sunny day (the weather service says the temp reached 68 degrees). Kids were slipping and sliding as military-garbed volunteers kept things organized.

    The street fair drew big crowds to Atlantic Ave. between Carson St. and San Antonio Dr. for vendors, food and live entertainment.

    More than 150 booths offered all kinds items and services.

    Neighborhood groups also had a presence. The California Heights Neighborhood Ass'n had an impressive display.

    Volunteer Alan Fishel proudly stands next to a Model-T with exhibits from the area's history.

    California Heights, officially designated as a historic district by the City Council, has a rich agricultural background.

    And we learned that in the 21st century, the Cal. Heights Neighborhood Association maintains an impressive websit at

    LB Airport had a booth...and it drew a crowd. Airport staff answered questions, distributed information about the Airport Terminal area expansion project...and gave away classy items including color posters, historical calendars, squeezy toy planes and toy airplane pilots' wings.

    The kids zone include spinning swings. A giant slide looms beyond.

    Adventurous kidlets tackled the rock climbing wall.

    Adults watched from below.
