Palos Verdes homes owners are looking forward to the annual Palos Verdes Peninsula Holiday Parade of Lights on Saturday, December 4, 2021, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This holiday tradition is back this year with festive floats and cheerful participants parading through the commercial district along Silver Spur Road to Roxcove Drive, to Deep Valley Drive and concluding on Drybank Drive.

He has been a resident of the Palos Verdes Peninsula since 2017. Kenley was named the National League Reliever of the Year (2020) and three time MLB All Star (2016-18).
Also featured are retired Rolling Hills Estates Councilmember and Mayor, Judith Mitchell, as Hometown Marshal, the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Citizens of the Year, our local First Responders which include Los Angeles Country Fire, Sheriff and EMT’s , Palos Verdes Estates Police Department and local hospital representatives from Torrance Memorial, Little Company and Kaiser Permanente.
