Los Gatos Jubilee: Celebrating 125 Years on August 10, 2012

August 08, 2012

Los Gatos 125th Jubilee Year 2012The Town of Los Gatos is celebrating 125 years of incorporation this Friday, August 10th, from 6pm to 8:30pm at 5 parks around town:

  • Bachman Park
  • Belgatos Park
  • Blossom Hill Park
  • La Rinconada Park
  • Live Oak Manor Park

The townwide birthday song is to be sung at 7:30pm.

I am sure that some of this blog’s readers will wonder why we are having five simultaneous, smaller celebrations rather than one grand one in downtown.  The answer is: I don’t know.  I do know that at least for the Belgatos party, the town had trouble getting a local person to want to be in charge of it.  To me it is a strange idea to celebrate simultaneously but not do it as a whole, since the point of incorporation was to bring the townsfolk under one umbrella, as it were.  If any readers can shed light on this approach, the comments would be most welcome.

In any event, happy birthday, Los Gatos!

P.S.: Want to brush up on your Los Gatos history? The town’s got a nice synopsis you can read online.
