Join Us for an Evening of Fun at the 11th Annual Civic Expo and National Night Out!

Celebrate our community with residents from all over La Palma and its neighboring cities.

The 11th Annual Civic Expo and National Night Out is a great opportunity for everyone to meet their neighbors in local government, talk to emergency responders, and learn about the city’s various service providers and utility organizations.

Civic Expo attendees are encouraged to visit the various booths representing many public service providers from the city, county, state and more. In addition, La Palma’s Energy Partners will be handing out Energy Efficiency Starter Kits on a first-come-first-serve basis, so come early to get this FREE energy saver. Bring your SoCal Gas bill with you to receive a Starter Kit, which includes three faucet aerators and a low-flow shower-head to help you save energy and water.

Children will enjoy ice cream, a bounce-house, and La Palma's popular Kid's Zone with arts and crafts, bubbles and other fun games! And like in years past, the La Palma Neighborhood Watch will be serving up their delicious hot dogs for everyone to enjoy, along with live music.

Each summer for over 30 years, six FREE Summer Concerts in the Park performances have been held at Henry Boisseranc Park. This family-friendly event is open to all, and my office will be available for information on state resources, to help answer any questions you might have and provide fun activities for the kids.

Come enjoy the music and festivities! The 2018 music lineup includes a variety of entertainment to keep you dancing to the beat. Seating is limited, so remember to bring a beach chair and blankets. Food will be available for purchase at the snack booth and food trucks. Walk your children over to the Reading Village for comfy story time and a free book to take home. Young readers will be able to check out a book in the Buena Park Pop-Up Library and earn prizes for reaching their summer reading goals!

Join me, and my office! Mark your calendars, grab the family, and come on down to Buena Park, where you’ll see your friends and find your neighbors. There is one more concert this summer in Boisseranc Park before the fun moves to the Krikorian Courtyard at the mall.

  • Always have an adult present.
  • Use fireworks outdoors only.
  • Never use near dry grass or other flammable materials.
  • Light one at a time.
  • Keep a safe distance.
  • Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  • Never experiment with fireworks.
  • Have a bucket of water and a hose handy.
  • Never attempt to re-light or "fix" fireworks.
  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pockets.
  • Fireworks are not toys.
  • Use only State Fire Marshal approved fireworks.
  • Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, please resist the urge to take them to festivities. Instead, keep your pets safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home.
