Pride of the Valley Open Streets event is taking place this Sunday, Sept. 16

The cities of Baldwin Park, Irwindale and L.A. County Parks and Recreation have partnered with Metro to host the Pride of the Valley Open Streets event on Sunday, Sept. 16. It is the first Open Streets event in the Emerald Necklace region along the San Gabriel River Trail.

Pride of the Valley Open Streets will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Four and a half miles of roadway will be closed to vehicular traffic so you can enjoy a family fun day featuring live performances by Erik Antonio and Mariachi Los Reyes, health and wellness activities, food stalls, a rock-climbing wall, BMX demonstrations, Pokémon gyms, and more.

If you’re interested in staying car-free on the way to the event, the Metro Gold Line Irwindale and Duarte/City of Hope stations are near the route. Another option is taking Metrolink to Baldwin Park Station. For Metro bus detours during the event, check our Service Advisory page.

The Pride of the Valley event helps build upon the connectivity that currently exists for pedestrians and cyclists within the region’s communities and demonstrates a collaborative process between numerous public agencies. It is intended to help foster a better, greener, more sustainable environment in the San Gabriel Valley.
