Bridge to Summer of Fun

Come and celebrate Balboa Island at the 24th Annual Parade and Party. Music provided by the Fabulous Nomads and BIG Wednesday. Although the parade begins at 11AM, keep in mind that the bridge closes at 10:45. Come early and get some great seats. The parade is a very fun annual tradition on the island where locals enjoy hanging out and watching kids on scooters and bikes, groups of pets, old cars, golf carts, walking bananas, the USC Marching Band and soooo much more. If you see us (Steve, Scarlett and Oliver), please say hi. If you want to be in this years photo album/video, we’d love to take your pic!

Hi Everyone. I just added a “Community Classifieds” due to popular demand. Here you can reach 20,000 people each month. It’s a great place to post about rentals you offer, services, watercraft and moorings, local news, etc. If you or local business want to let others know about events or are hiring, great for that as well. You can also post wanted, free and lost and found ads. Hope this helps everyone! Neighbors and I thought it would be great to have an online version of our local Index Card boards! – Steve Roose

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Sprinkle Sprinkle Balboa Bar

As many of you know… my kids, like most kids, love BALBOA BARS. We love them so much it inspired us to design this Balboa Bar T-Shirt. Tonight, while singing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”, we decided to modify the Nursery Rhyme to fit our fun Balboa Island lifestyle and well you know, dream about Balboa Bars. It resulted in lots of giggles… Here is the original along with our modified version. We hope you like it and have lots of giggles with your kiddos before bedtime! – Steve, Oliver and Scarlett
