    "This extraordinary Open Streets event will provide five miles of happiness for pedestrians, walkers, bikers and skaters," said L.A. County Supervisor and Metro Board Chair Sheila Kuehl. "These events show that there are way healthier, more sustainable and outright fun ways to get around our community if you just get out of your car."

    • Promote sustainable, active modes of transportation.
    • Encourage play, community connections, and exploration of the San Gabriel Valley's diverse communities.
    • Improve the health of people of all incomes, abilities, and backgrounds.

     

    This event features more than just a car-free zone, it will have live music, performances, food, and over 150 exhibitors and vendors.

    There will be an opening ceremony at 8:30 a.m. in South Pasadena featuring the mayors of Alhambra, South Pasadena and San Gabriel, Gabe the Sasquatch and local dignitaries.
