Fiesta La Ballona presents three days of carnival rides, live music, food trucks, games, and a beer and wine garden for the adults this August 22 - 24 -- Culver City’s annual “Party in the Park” at Veterans Park.  Veterans Park is located at 4117 Overland Avenue in Culver City and complimentary parking is available.

Let's face it, we all go to the fiesta for the rides (or at least take our kids to the fiesta for the rides). But here's info about the rest of the day's entertainment:

The Fiesta’s performances in the Entertainment Tent will begin on Friday, August 22 at 4:00 pm, with Ballroom Dancing from Pat Ruane & Dancers and Jimmy Brewster and the Westside Band performing Rat Pack classics.
