City staff promote August family events in Alhambra

Alhambra is launching a new summer event called Summer Serenade. Starting Aug. 9, residents and visitors can enjoy free music and entertainment for four Friday evenings from 7-9 p.m. at Alhambra Park, according to Director of Community Services Cynthia Jarvis. Residents can bring their picnic baskets or try the food trucks that will be participating in the event.

Councilwoman Barbara Messina compared the new summer program to the canceled Summer Jubilee“It’s not exactly the Summer Jubilee, but slowly, we are bringing back family-friendly events in our city,” Messina said.

Alhambra Police Chief Mark Yokoyama also invited residents Monday to attend National Night Out Against Crime on Aug. 6 from 5-8:30 p.m. at the Alhambra Police Department. Yokoyama said the event is an opportunity for families to get acquainted with the police force, attend station tours, watch demonstrations and learn more about city safety. Hot dogs and free entertainment will also be provided.

Alhambra City Council also voted Monday to authorize a raffle for a single-family home on Front Street and a reduction in price to assist the homebuyer. Residents who meet the city's first-time homebuyer requirements will be eligible to enter and win the Alhambra home.
