|· What kind of activities go on in Whitley Heights?|
There are a variety of fun and involving activities that occur
throughout the year in Whitley Heights. Many of the funnest
activities are those that change from year to year -- so to be specific
about what is going to be coming up in any given time is hard to
say. There is a yearly Whitley Heights Pumpkin Contest which
usually occurs the Sunday before Halloween (or on Halloween if it falls
on a Sunday!) This is not to be missed as residents go all-out to create a festive Halloween occasion.[ Back to Top ]
Every year on August 23 at noon (or more precisely 12:10 pm), various
Whitley Heights residents and others from throughout the Hollywood area
visit the Hollywood Forever memorial site of Rudolph Valentino.
It is a yearly tradition for residents, both new and old.
Typically one hundred or so visitors are at the ceremony commemorating
the actor in words, video and pictures. Many are from out of the
area, but the variety of people who are lifelong fans of Rudolph
Valentino is quite amazing.
Additionally, throughout the year, neighbors take on various fun
activities to keep life on the hill active and lively. Near
December, lamp post decorating has become traditional and neighbors on
various streets adopt their own lamps to decorate with holiday cheer --
ribbons, garland, and any number of colorful designs.
On various occasions, home tours have been given to showcase the
beautiful and historic houses within Whitley Heights. Sometimes
these are co-sponsored with the LA Conservancy and sometimes they are
organized by the Whitley Heights Civic Association.
More recently, Bowl-a-rama has hit the hill as various teams sign up to
bowl and socialize -- both to have fun and to raise funds for various
Whitley Heights Civic Association (WHCA) activities on the hill. The
play is non-competitive, but winners
and losers usually take how some kind of prize or fun award.
This website also sponsors some activities throughout the year --
always in an attempt to generate neighborly goodwill and fun for
everyone participating. Events or contests will appear at
