Although temperatures hovered in the low nineties into the evening, lots of people got out for some Friday night entertainment at the Ladies Night Out event in the Magnolia Park shopping district. With special events at the stores – book signings, musicians, cocktails, sales – and just about every food truck imaginable, people from all over Burbank and beyond stopped by for some fun.
Burbank residents Kathy Wrabley and Fay Playsted said they come to the shops in Magnolia Park all the time. They chatted with Kelli Abrahamian at the Just Jan’s fruit preserves table. Ms. Abrahamian, who has moved to Burbank from Minnesota in the past year, commented, “Everyone is so friendly here. It’s like a small town in a big city.”
Even as the sun set and the night lights turned on, the festive attitude continued until well into the evening, with shops and restaurants staying open a little later, perhaps, for this last Friday monthly event.
