As a Pasadena resident, you’ve probably driven across the Colorado Street Bridge more times than you can count, but how many times have you actually walked on it? Thanks to Pasadena Heritage’s biennial Colorado Street Bridge Party, now is your chance!
Pasadena Heritage Development Coordinator Hayden Prater promises the night of a lifetime for you and your family at what the community refers to as “Pasadena’s largest block party.” Prater says, “We always try and have something new and exciting. This year, we have vintage cars and silent disco to wow attendees. And the magic of being atop the Colorado Street Bridge is something you never forget. The bridge is [hardly ever] closed, so this is a rare occasion to be celebrating while standing over the Arroyo and watching the sunset.”
In between enjoying the endless entertainment options, attendees can nibble on local culinary treats. “Adults will be able to roam the park and bridge with wine from San Antonio Winery, craft beer from Craftsman Brewery and specialty cocktails. There are also a wide range of food vendors who will be offering everything from vegan popsicles, funnel cakes, BBQ ribs and burgers to dumplings and paella,” notes Prater.
As for the kids? No need to book a babysitter; there will be plenty of activities for your little ones to enjoy including a drum circle, arts and crafts, face painting, balloon animals and much more!
Sat., 6 p.m.-11:30 p.m. Tickets $8-$20. The Colorado Street Bridge, 532 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91105 or pasadenaheritage.org.
