Fairplex Weekend Recap: Roadsters Brave The Heat

There’s no denying it: this weekend was HOT. June gloom is already feeling like a distant phenomenon, taken over by scorching temperatures and a blazing sun. But that didn’t stop die hard car fans from heading to Fairplex for the L.A. Roadsters show!

Gorgeous roadsters lined the walls of our expo halls as visitors took in the sight, chatted with car owners, shopped, ate, drank and stayed in the shade as much as possible. We always enjoy having this group on campus!

Thank you to everyone who braved the heat to join us for this Father’s Day Weekend event! For more information on the LA Roadsters, click here.

Fairplex Weekend Recap: Asian American Expo

We were b u s y this weekend at Fairplex! Check out what our campus looked like:

Asian American Expo
We kicked things off with the Asian American Expo and it. was. packed. It seems like everywhere you went there was something to eat, buy or do.

We had a blast checking out the cosplay at Anime Impulse, watching guests chow down on fried squid, noodles and desserts of every kind, and clapping along with audiences captivated by Taiko drummers, Tahitian dancers, martial arts demonstrations and more in the expo halls.

On top of that, the Expo also featured several live musical performances, DJ sets and a sample clothing sale.

It was impossible to be bored for a single second and we are already looking forward to next year’s Lunar New Year celebrations!

Pomona Swap Meet
Literally hours after the first night of Asian American Expo came to a close, car enthusiasts started rolling in for the monthly Pomona Swap Meet & Classic Car Show.

As always, guests shopped parts for their current auto projects, showed off their classic cars and enjoyed food and drinks with fellow visitors. Thankfully it wasn’t raining so we enjoyed a sunny Sunday on all sides of campus.

We’re taking a slight breather today but it won’t be long before we’re making preparations for the Grand National Roadster Show. Hope your weekend was as fun as ours was!
