626 “Golden Streets” Festival
Supervisor Kathryn Barger attended the 626 “Golden Streets” Festival organized to promote active transportation throughout the San Gabriel Valley. The event began in South Pasadena, and traveled along streets closed to car traffic for 18 miles to the finish line in Azusa. Over 100,000 residents joined in the festivities for what was the largest “open-streets” event in United States.
“This event provided participants a unique perspective from the streets, encouraging healthier lifestyles and commuting options free from clogged freeways,” said Supervisor Barger.
