Altadena Sheriff’s Station Revs Up Annual Car Show Saturday
Attention all car lovers: There will plenty of hot rods and cool wheels to gawk at on Saturday.
The Altadena Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is holding its annual Car Show on Saturday, June 9, at Farnsworth Park, at 568 Mount Curve Ave. in Altadena, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sponsored by Toyota Pasadena, the car show, now on its sixth year, welcomes all makes and models of cars, including antiques, street rods, and classics; trucks and motorcycles brought in by local area participants. The car show also features live music, vendor booths, food and a DJ.
“We wanted to do something where you get a wide variety of vehicles. You go to some shows, it will be just oldies or Ferraris or just hot rods, whatever it may be,” Sergeant Matthew Bossier told Altadena Now in 2015. “But we want to get the community together and all different people within the community. I think if you love for cars, for one specific type of car, you have a love for all types of cars.”
A note on the station’s Nextdoor page anticipates the possible return of the “rocket car.”
“There’ll be all sorts of Sheriff’s vehicles on site, including, most likely, some horses,” the note said.
There’s a cost for food and for raffle tickets, but checking out the cars is free.
If you’re a car owner who’d like to enter your vehicle in the show, or would like to volunteer or ask other questions, call Sgt. Sandy Crossthwaite at (626) 296-2107.
