Party on the Bridge

Jul 5, 2010

This Saturday on the Colorado Street Bridge, that is, courtesy of Pasadena Heritage. There’ll be live music on three stages, dancing, antique cars, children’s games and food and drink (no-host) from around twenty local vendors, including Craftsman Brewing (!), Eagle Rock Brewing, Big Mama’s Rib Shack, Garlic Jim’s Gourmet Pizza, Cha Da Thai, Los Tacos and more. The musical highlights (we think) are Mercy and the Merkettes, who can be seen in dive bars all over the SGV (as well as the occasional Valley Hunt Club fundraiser), and Snotty Scotty and the Hankies, the “official” band of the Doo Dah Parade. Also putting in an appearance is KTLA Morning Show anchor and Canadian transplant Michaela Pereira. There will not, however, be any bungee jumping.

Copies of the wonderful Hometown Pasadena and At Home: Pasadena will be on sale, with proceeds benefiting the hosts, Pasadena Heritage—as will the proceeds from the sale of 30 signed limited edition Kenton Nelson prints, “View of the Arroyo.” They’re going fast, so get yours, and your tickets, here.
