These photos are from the Torrance Centennial Birthday Bash which was held Sunday at Wilson Park in Torrance, CA. I have to say, this was a very fun family event that included arts and crafts, live music, games for the kids, food trucks, a petting zoo and culminated with the release of 100 doves and a parachutist team that came down with a centennial flag along with flags of Torrance, California, and an American flag. It was a beautiful day and those that took advantage of it seemed to have a great time.
There seems to be some discrepancy as to whether the City of Torrance was founded on October 24, 1912 or October 28, 1912 but it is clear that we had much better weather today than they had 100 years ago. Torrance has grown a lot in the last 100 years and I am sure the next 100 will be just as prosperous; someone will have to update this for me as I probably will not be around.
