City of San Gabriel continues its 100th year Celebration with the Sound of San Gabriel Concert on October 12th
In 2013 the great city of San Gabriel is celebrating their 100th anniversary with special events held all year long. The “City with a Mission” began their festivities with an award winning entry float at the 2013 Rose Parade. Since then, there have been several events to commemorate 100years as an incorporated city that began April 23 1913. San Gabriel is known for its deeply rooted Gabrielno-Tongva Indian Tribe, the historical Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, and landmark adobe homes. The city is also known for the Wham-O Inc. manufacturing plant where products like the hula hoop, the Frisbee and the Slip-N-Slide were developed and manufactured.
The city also has a rich music history that stems from residents who were raised in San Gabriel, educated in San Gabriel and reside in San Gabriel. The concert is set to take place October 12 is deemed as “The Sound of San Gabriel”. Historical images, stories, and live music will highlight the cities music history from the 1950’s to present day.
