The City Parties: LAFD

It’s an annual Alive! tradition!

Every year, City departments put aside their hard work and come together for fun and socialization at their festive holiday parties. And Alive! publishes as many of your party pics as we can, in print and online. Starting this month, we cover the City Parties. And we’ll continue in the next months as the photos come in.


More than 30 revelers attended the LAFD HQ’s holiday party, held Dec. 7 in City Hall.

The Club contributed attendance prizes to enhance the holiday fun.

The party included catered food, games of musical chairs, an ugly/cute sweater contest, raffles, prizes, and photos with Santa!
