A Note From the Publishers – July 2019
From coast to coast, Americans spend the Fourth of July celebrating our nation’s independence. From fireworks to parades, barbecues, celebrations and more, the Fourth of July is a day to honor America’s birthday. Independence Day is also a very special day in Newhall. An event that began in 1932, residents of Santa Clarita gather to participate in one of the community’s longest traditions … the Santa Clarita Valley Fourth of July Parade. Crowds line the streets, complete with flags to honor the good ol’ red, white and blue. Come join us and celebrate our nation’s birthday.
There’s also much to celebrate in Old Town Newhall. On our cover, we have featured some of the retailers, restaurant and business owners who proudly call Old Town Newhall their home. From boutiques to restaurants, and much more, Old Town Newhall is definitely worth a visit. Spend the day perusing down Main Street and see all there is to offer. We continue with our great coverage of this growing area, please visit page 57 for our Beautiful Old Town Newhall Section, and please support our local businesses, as there are many benefits to shopping local. We have also focused on the merchants of Westfield Valencia Town Center. See our Westfield Focus on page 34. This ties in nicely with a fun way to spend your Friday evenings as Town Center Drive is the new location for the Valencia Jazz and Blues Concert Series, enjoy the extraordinary sounds from top jazz and blues recording artists as you watch the sunset.
Music performances are a summertime favorite in the Santa Clarita Valley, so don’t let the fun stop on Friday as the City of Santa Clarita hosts their free Concerts in the Park series every Saturday beginning on July 6 with Wannabe: A tribute to the Spice Girls. The concert series will continue every Saturday through August 24 at Central Park. Visit page 30 for the full line up.
While July is a favorite time to vacation and lay by the pool, don’t forget to pamper yourself with one of the businesses listed in our Summertime Beauty Guide beginning on page 108. The summer months are also a favorite time to spend outdoors, so be sure and check out our Outdoor Oasis Guide on page 136.
We are busily working on our August/September issue of élite Magazine and we are excited to announce our Ultimate Dining & Entertainment Winners. We’ll also be featuring a beautiful bridal section, the perfect guide to help you, your family or friends get started on a dream autumn wedding. Be sure to check your mailbox at the end of the month. In the meantime, share your thoughts with us by voting for the 2019 élite Magazine Ultimate Home & Garden Winners at scvellitemagazine.com. Voting ends July 20.
We hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer and a happy and safe Fourth of July.
Until next time,
Linda, Moe and Alexander Hafizi
