The Hermosa Beach Memorial Day Weekend Fiesta  rebounded from the pandemic with a potent mixture of music, art and community. The expanded layout stretched from Hermosa Avenue, up Pier Avenue to the Community Center, where the art booths, and carnival rides were located. Bands performed on the beach for the first time in years, Though well attended, food and craft booths in the downtown were spread out to reduce the feeling of crowdedness from previous years. Fiesta Hermosa is presented by the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce.
