Vroom Vroom! Altadena Sheriff’s Station Stages 3rd Annual Car Show Saturday


The Altadena Sheriff’s Station is staging its 3rd Annual Car Show, this time a Classic Car Show sponsored by Toyota Pasadena, on Saturday, June 13.

The car show was held in April during the first two editions, but this year the Sheriff’s Station decided to hold it in the summer so bad weather wouldn’t threaten to dampen the festivities.

“Last year we got almost rained out. We had a strong storm coming through and the first show, too, we had a little bit of inclement weather,” said Sergeant Matthew Bossier at Altadena Station. “This year we thought that if we had it in June, it’s a little bit warmer.”

The Classic Car Show will be held at the Farnsworth Park at 568 Mount Curve Avenue in Altadena starting at 9 a.m. and running until 4 p.m.

Bossier said they have invited car owners and collectors with antique vehicles, street rods, classics, trucks and even motorcycles,

“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,” he told Pasadena Now. “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.”

One of the highlights of the show will be live bands performing classic rock. Bossier says the group Highway 91 with Angela Shepard has committed to be there and play rock and country music all day. The band performs throughout the San Gabriel Valley and has performed in one of the earlier Altadena car shows.

With Toyota Pasadena sponsoring the car show, early registrants will get giveaways in “goodie bags” including coffee mugs, t-shirts, and keychains. Bossier says the first 25 registrants will get goodie bags.

“There’s going to be great food – hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, soda, cotton candy…  There’s going to be coffee vendors, vendors of beer,” he said.

Registration fees after the 12th will be $30, and on event day will be $40.
