Colfax Meadows had its own secretive party on the Fourth of July just an hour after the one in Footbridge Square kicked off.
In fact, the firetrucks that kicked off the earlier parade then came a few blocks west to the Colfax Meadows party and led off their parade with vintage cars and lots of dogs and families.
Neither parade was put into the EVENTs area of Studio City Patch, and as Stu Miller said, "We don't really want everyone to know about it, it's for the neighborhood."
Although it was opened to everyone, the free tofu dogs, hot dogs and chips were sponsored by local families and kept to one block around Aqua Vista and Camelia Avenue.
"We had about 10 committee members and we've been working on it all year," said Krista Ghaman one of the organizers. "About 100 volunteers have worked on this, it's a family affair."
The neighborhood block party was advertised only by flyers that were put up on trees and lampposts around the Colfax Meadows area.
Gail Steinberg, a resident and local realtor, had a booth there, and the Sherman Oaks Baseball team was selling raffle tickets to raise money for their game in Cooperstown, New York on Aug. 3
There was a pie contest and a chili cook-off also held.
