South Pasadena will once again be “Cruz’n for the Roses” in September.
As a benefit for the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses, a huge car show will be held Sept. 16 on Mission St. in the city. Admission is free.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., dozens of hot rod and classic cars will lineup from Fair Oaks to Meridian Ave., adjacent the Gold Line Station.
There will also be food and drinks for sale, exhibits, and vendors selling merchandise. Proceeds support the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses’ float in the 2019 Rose Parade that is under construction behind the War Memorial Building in the 400 block of Fair Oaks Avenue.
In addition to the car show, officials from the South Pasadena police and fire departments will stage their annual open house on the same day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along Hope St., behind both stations in the 1400 block of Mission St.
The free open house event will also include earthquake and safety information, demonstrations, vendor displays, food, raffles and tours of both the police and fire departments and more. Those on hand can also meet the police department’s new mascot – “Justice.”
For more information about the car show, call (626) 799-7813 or www.SPTOR.org. Details about the open house are available by calling (626) 403-7270.
