Colorado Street Bridge
504 W Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA  91105
Listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, Pasadena's Colorado Street Bridge is one of the most iconic bridges in California. Built in 1913, the bridge has had a long — and occasionally troubled — history that includes earthquake damage, near demolition and suicide jumpers. But it's also recognizable for its trademark arches and lamp posts, backdrops of the Arroyo Seco and Rose Bowl and appearances in countless film and TV (2016's La La Land, to name one). To celebrate the neighborhood landmark, the nonprofit Pasadena Heritage hosts its biennial Colorado Street Bridge Party. The bridge will be closed off to drivers, so you can freely roam about and admire the display of vintage cars (some dating back to 1913), eat food from more than a dozen local restaurants and craft breweries, leave kids in the children's area and listen to nearly a dozen bands across four stages playing everything from blues and reggae to surf music; performers include Dilemma, composed of members of Doo Dah Parade house band Snotty Scotty & the Hankies.
