Eagle Rock prepares to celebrate it centennial

The City of Eagle Rock existed for little more than a decade before its residents abandoned independence to become a neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles in 1923 (regrets, anyone?). But Eagle Rock has retained a strong identity, even it's former City Hall, over the decades. Now, residents are taking the first steps to plan a 2011 celebration marking the 100th anniversary of the city's incorporation. Councilman Jose Huizar's office is holding a meeting tonight to discuss potential ideas, including a parade or the revival of Dahlia Days:

"A number of things have been suggested such as a parade which would celebrate our early history when Eagle Rock participated in Pasadena’s Rose Parade. Other ideas include something like the old “Dahlia Days” which is no longer held here, or something like back in 1997 when we celebrated the official dedication of the great rock for which Eagle Rock is named."
