Join Pasadena Heritage to celebrate one of Pasadena’s most iconic structures. The Colorado Street Bridge Party has long been a community favorite but this year, instead of a party on the bridge, locals are invited to a week-long virtual celebration of the bridge from Aug. 9-15.
Classic cars will cruise the historic neighborhoods of Pasadena and across the Colorado Street Bridge to kick off the festivities on Sunday. Monday there will be a lecture on the history of the bridge with best-selling author Chip Jacobs, and on Tuesday a panel discussion on the proposed new fencing with members of the Bridge Task Force. On Wednesday, architect and structural engineer Chris Peck will hold a story time and hands-on bridge building activity geared towards the younger generation. Sponsors will be treated to an exclusive talk from renowned artist Kenton Nelson on Thursday. To begin your weekend with a bang, a virtual happy hour and trivia with Eagle Rock Brewery will be hosted on Friday. Finally on Saturday, Pasadena Heritage will broadcast a special video on the Colorado Street Bridge. Detailed information on each event can be found at pasadenahertiage.org/bridgecelebration.
All this is included for the price of a ticket ($20 for members and $25 for non-members).
