Remembrance Motorcade
We will always remember: Don’t miss the “Remembrance Motorcade” The Motorcade leaves the Ralphs parking lot at approximately 9:00 am and then winds its way through La Crescenta routed by the Elementary Schools, Middle School and High School as well as Fire Stations and on through Montrose Shopping Park. The motorcade then makes it way to Foothill Blvd on through La Canada all the way to La Canada High School and at the base camp just below JPL.

Hosted by the Crescenta Valley Chamber and the Early Roders. The best place to watch is near one of the local schools. Rosemont Middle School will make you shed a tear when you see all of those kids outside lining the street waving the American Flag and cheering the motorcade on.
