Mystery History -- Solved!
Nobody was absolutely spot on, but Paul Little was the first to come close with his 5:42 p.m. Tuesday comment "I'm guessing it's limos parked near the Rose Bowl during an event waiting for the game or show to be over."
Now the stadium is the subject of public meetings where the financing plan for renovation and expansion is being discussed.
The Rose Bowl Operating Company will vote on the financing plan tonight at 6:30 in the Mediterranean Room at Brookside Clubhouse, and the plan is slated to go to the Pasadena City Council for final approval this coming Monday at City Hall. That meeting will also begin at 6:30 p.m.
They're public meetings, and you're welcome to attend and weigh in during public comment.
The agenda for Monday's council meeting will be posted by about 6 p.m. tonight here.
The council meeting will be televised live on KPAS (cable channel 3 in Pasadena) and via streaming video here (click on the KPAS icon).
The Rose Bowl Stadium is an important historic landmark and economic resource. Is it worth saving? In this PIO's not-so-humble opinion, the answer is yes.
