Greenius on Patch.com: Riviera Village Summer Festival Not So Green

Many residents and visitors participate in this year's Riviera Village Summer Festival.

I walked down from my Hollywood Riviera home to the Riviera Village Summer Festival Saturday on a mission to get something good to eat while I listened to the groovin’ music on this perfect June beach day for the first weekend of summer. I also wanted to see how my own hometown street fair stacks up against neighboring events in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Palos Verdes.

I’m happy to report that there was a great BBQ truck that served up a smoking good pulled pork sandwich and a big BBQ’d turkey leg.
