Today is a Rose Bowl flea market Sunday.
It’s the largest flea market around LA with 2,500 vendors and has been going strong for 9 years. It takes place the second Sunday of the month at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Parking is free and admission is $8.00 per person starting at 9:00 AM. Kids under 12 come in free with an accompanying adult. You can get in as early as 5:00 AM but the price goes up the earlier you want to get in. Most vendors set up for 9, so it hardly seems worth it.
