Claremont eBuzz
Mid-September - October
Claremont is Picture Perfect Year 'Round!
Autumn's a wonderful time to attend a wide variety of events in this lively community. Simply scroll down in event-full eNews to see an overview. There are a number of "walks" (Walk for the Hungry and Homeless, Chocolate Walk, Ghost Walk - SOLD OUT, Home Tour), concerts, art exhibitions and, of course, Village Venture and Halloween. 
As for me, I enjoy taking photos in this unique So Cal town and sharing them online and in print (like with my postcard collection). Whether you're nearby or far, I hope you'll get a kick out of being able to see Claremont -- from my camera's lens to you. 
Have Fun! I Hope to See You at the Festivities.
