Party for/on the Colorado Street Bridge

The nighttime bash takes it to the famous bridge.

Pasadena Heritage

With as city as large as ours, celebrations often end up in unusual places. The roof of a skyscraper or the middle of Santa Monica Boulevard or an ocean-close pier on a summer night.

But we are hard-pressed to think of parties that happen on bridges. That's one reason the annual Celebration on the Colorado Street Bridge is special. It isn't fighting for attention in a bridge-bash pool of bridge-bashery.

Nope. It's unique. It also celebrates one of Pasadena's best-known landmarks, a mammoth but graceful curve that's sat outside the entrance to the Crown City for nearly a century (the bridge was built in 1913).

And on Saturday, July 10, bridge buffs will gather to fete the far-above-the-ground icon with music, a car show, eats and other festive touches. The party is from 6-10 p.m.; an adult ticket is $13.50.

Pasadena Heritage is the host, so bet your money will go back to the bridge in part, or other local-landmarkian efforts.
