Saturday October 26, 2019 (9am-4pm) - 626 Golden Streets | SGV Streets and Treats (El Monte - South El Monte) - Costumed participants will enjoy trick-or-treat stations, games, and more!
SGV Streets and Treats | Sat 10/26/19
626 Golden Streets | SGV Streets and Treats will feature a 4.5 mile route with trick-or-treating booths, music and arts activations, cultural offerings, and family-friendly games and contests (e.g., best dressed bicycle/scooter, family, dog, etc). Linking South El Monte and El Monte, the ciclovia will also build upon the community’s annual Children’s Day Festival and Dia de Los Muertos celebrations, and connect to a Complete Streets demo project and one of SoCal’s first bicycle parks at the Jeff Seymour Family Center in El Monte. Stay tuned for a route map and more event details!
#626GoldenStreets in 6 Points
Golden Streets is a FREE event! But bring cash or card to sample SGV treats and support local businesses along the route!
YOU get to decide where you start and finish. There is no right or wrong way to experience the event.
All forms of non-motorized transportation are permitted, including walking, biking, skating, scooting, jogging, running, ambling, and strolling.
Golden Streets is NOT a race. There are no finisher medals or awards. Only miles of smiles.
Share the road. Please stay right and exercise caution so everyone can have a safe, enjoyable day.
Don't forget to stop, enjoy, and take a picture! Share your best snapshots on social media with the hashtag #626GoldenStreets for chances to win 626 swag and more post-event!
Three family-friendly activity zones to stop, rest, relax, and maybe even meet #GabeTheSasquatch in person will be interspersed across the May 19th event route. Each hub will feature different things to see and do for participants of all ages, including:
live performers, artists, and entertainment
inflatable obstacle courses, climbing walls, and games
arts activities, chalk artists, and crafts
vendors and exhibitors
electric bike/scooter/car demos
City sticker challenge: collect a FREE city sticker (while supplies last) in each hub you visit
Activity hubs will also include core services such as water and restrooms; free bike and roll valet (strollers, skateboards, scooters, bikes); and spaces to relax. For a detailed list of hub activities and offerings, please visit the Activity Hub page and be sure to check back before the event as performer schedules are subject to change.
Get a head start on your day with the 626 Fun Run/Walk! The 5k Run/Walk will start and finish at the South Pasadena event hub, and traverse a section of the longer 626 Golden Streets event route.

Must sign-up on-line starting before May 15, 2019. First come first serve.
