Car Show in South Pas Attracts Large Crowd

Event Feature Hot Rods to Classic Cars

Hundreds of vehicles were on display on Sunday, September 15, as the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Committee held its 9th annual Cruz’n For Roses Hot Rod and Classic Car Show along Mission Street in the city.  Check back for amazing, DOWNLOADABLE  PHOTOGRAPHS of the days event!!

Vendors were selling food and automotive supplies as part of the big event, which attracted about 400 custom, classic cars and hot rods.

Car owners were asked to pay a small fee to showcase their vehicles while major sponsors supported the show.

Ted Shaw, co-chair of the big attraction,  estimates that more than $20,000 will be raised to help pay for South Pasadena’s float in the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day.

In addition to the car show, the South Pasadena police and fire departments held their annual open house. The days events featured safety information, police, canine  demonstrations, vendor displays, giveaways and tours of both the police and fire departments

Police officials took free photos and fingerprints of children with parents. The family outing allowed kids to climb into the seat of police cars and motorcycles, see the inner-workings of a fire engine and view helicopters from ground level.
