Hometown Parade | Time Capsule and Centennial Plaza Dedication at El Prado Park

The Hometown Parade began at 12:00 p.m., on Post Avenue, south of Cravens with the Time Capsule and Centennial Plaza Dedication  starting at 2:00 p.m., at El Prado and Cravens.

The Time Capsule Installation and Centennial Plaza was constructed with financial support from our community.  Each Centennial Brick was incorporated into the beautifully designed Centennial Plaza at El Prado Park.

The Torrance Centennial Committee’s Executive Committee took the lead on preparing the Centennial Time Capsule.  The Time Capsule was purchased from Future Packaging and Preservation.  Committee member Dr. John Stecker traveled to Chino to pick up the time capsule which was stored at Frank Scotto Towing until its final preparation.  Nine categories were selected to represent the past, present, and future of Torrance.  Items were carefully chosen for their historical significance and pertinence to life in Torrance.  Ideas for the contents were solicited from community members, city employees, city elected officials, and Centennial Committee members.  Items were prepared for the time capsule by  Dr. Laurie Love, Centennial Chairperson and Dee Hardison, Centennial Vice Chairperson according to the recommendations of Gaylord Bros Inc., Future Packaging and Preservation, and Heritage Time Capsules. On August 20, 2012, CitiCABLE and committee members caravanned to Chino to deliver the capsule to for final preparation and preservation.  On August 27, 2012, CitiCABLE and Laurie Love picked up the time capsule and delivered it to City Hall.  The time capsule was put into the vault at the Torrance Centennial Plaza on September 5, 2012.  On September 16, 2012, following the Torrance Centennial Parade, the Torrance Centennial Plaza and Time Capsule dedication was held in El Prado Park.  

Take a look at what the Torrance Community in 100 years will find when the time capsule is re-opened during our City’s Bi-Centennial in 2112! Check out Time Capsule Contents NOW!
