The Granada Hills 16th annual street faire restores relationships in the community

By Jasmine Kim

The Granada Hills Chamber of Commerce hosted its 16th annual street faire on October 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The event consisted of a car show, live music, food, and vendor booths. The street faire also had a kid zone with jumpers, games, a puppy petting station, as well as arts and crafts.

The Granada Hills Chamber of Commerce advocates for businesses in the community in order to foster stronger communication and economic cooperation between residents. The Chamber of Commerce helps by examining problems, proposing solutions, and engaging in discussions that help build Granada Hills into a place where business owners and residents mutually depend on each other.

In order to enhance and support the local businesses of the city, there were many booths for real estate stations, neighborhood councils, volunteer cleaning communities, and city council members. Chatsworth St. was lined with tents and booths with other vendors selling jewelry, clothes, crystals, candles, hair accessories, and food as well.

“We’re from the neighborhood and wanted to check the faire out. So far, we love it. We were able to connect with many locals in the area,” Karen, the vendor for hairbows, said.

After over a year of staying at home due to the fear of attending public gatherings with many people, families seemed to enjoy spending time with each other and friends. 

“It’s good to be out around people. It’s nice seeing people around the area come and enjoy the games, food, and cars,” Paul and Michelle, an older couple, said.
