La Mirada will call attention to the city's most attractive homes and businesses during the annual spring beautification contest. Volunteer judges from 13 community and service organizations will judge properties between April 20 and 27. A total of 232 homes and 25 businesses will be chosen for awards.
Winners will receive certificates at a July 9 reception at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. They also will receive free admission that night to the theater's production of the musical "Anything Goes," which will be playing at the theater then.
