Beautiful Downtown Magnolia Park 

Comments
Only in Burbank will you find three AMC movie theaters within five blocks of each other. Away from the hubbub of downtown lies Burbank's quaint and quiet Magnolia Park area, lined with vintage shops, a year-round Halloween store and a true landmark, Porto's Bakery. And for the second year, the Be-Boppin' in the Park festival showcases more than 200 pre-1972 vintage cars, plus a dance floor and stage with live music by the Sardo Brothers and rockabilly band the Hot Rod Trio. Prizes are handed out in categories that include the coolest, hottest and most all-American cars, in addition to the Jay Leno Award (Leno himself attended last year) for the funniest car.
Sat., Aug. 23, 3-9 p.m., 2008
