My favorite time of the year on Balboa Island! Shut down Marine Ave for the annual parade and enjoy the entertainment of the locals. Scarlett, Oliver and I had a blast watching the parade and enjoying the after-party. Did you get to see the parade? Were you in it? Next year we are going to get in the lineup… I’m pretty sure that’s what Chris Crosson Sr.​ was trying to tell me from his amazing Sand Castle Kit​ float.

Balboa Island is full of character and charm! One of the ways residents express themselves is through their mailboxes. I enjoy seeing all of the personality. Here are a few of my favorites. – Steve Roose with Luxury Real Estate

We had sooo much fun at the 23rd Annual Balboa Island Parade.  The theme was “100 years of fun and sun”.  Balboa Island is truly a one of a kind community. – Steve Roose
