Its debatable which is the bigger deal in Old Town Monrovia this Saturday. The Umpteenth Annual Street Rods Forever Car Show or Zipcode Day Celebrations…a local holiday celebrating the zip code and date coinciding 9/10/16 in the 91016. My personal favorite is the Street Rods Forever car show as, well, its all about the cars.
Street Rods Forever will occupy Myrtle Avenue from the 300 South Block down to the 800 South Block in the heart of Old Town Monrovia from 9AM-2PM.
Zip Code Day is a biggy for the city of Monrovia. Not so much that there’s the coincidence, but rather its just another reason for the community to come together and celebrate where we live and play in Library Park.
Among the festivities there will be live music, food booths, community organizations with activities for the young at heart and youngsters among us. Festivities start at 11AM with a proclamation from Mayor Tom Adams then the announcement of the post card desighn winner. Several booths selling commemorative merchandise. There will also be a unique post mark for the day and you can drop off your stamped and addressed postcards to be postmarked and delivered to luck recipients. Such fun.
Regardless of which even you chose, parking in Old Town is difficult on weekends without an event. Might I suggest mass transit and take the Gold Line to the Monrovia Station and hoof it the 8 blocks to Old Town?
Zipcode Day will take place from 11AM – 3 PM Saturday 9*10*16 MAP HERE
