Vendors will also promote their goods and sharing information. Expect to come ready to buy sand art, candles, massages, clothing and more. “This is one of my favorite La Ballona traditions,” shares Principal Jennifer Slabbinck. “It is a great way for families and the community to become more familiar with all of the things that make La Ballona the impressive and special school that it is.”
