O n Sunday, February 23, 2014 Montrose turns 101 years old! It was on Washington’s Birthday in 1913 that the subdivision of present day Montrose began. Developers Holmes and Walton auctioned off 300 acres of land at a catered barbecue at the approximate corner of what is today Verdugo Blvd. and Clifton Place near the site of the local Mobil Station.
Celebrate with us as we bring you alfresco dining with specials from our local restaurants, live music, an expanded Kids’ Zone, retail booths in the 2200 block of Honolulu representing some of our Montrose merchants’ best offerings, and of course our Sunday Harvest Market and Marketplace in the 2300 block.
At 2pm, gather around the stage on Ocean View to honor with us some of the folks in our community who have helped make Montrose what it is today. Following the Montrose Founders Day Awards Ceremony, we will sing “Happy 101st Birthday” to Montrose and serve free birthday cake to one and all!
The Montrose Merchants invite you to shop,dine and stroll in the Montrose Shopping Park on Sunday, February 23, 2014
