  • This place is great. I attended the Rolling Stones Concert with 60,000 people. The sound was great. The parking staff did an awesome job. We got out of the parking lot after the event pretty quickly.
  • A great fireworks show! The independent day celebration in Rose Bowl has a style of it's own. With the Acapella band and vocal artists the evening started slowly. Eventually we reached for the main attraction the fireworks show! With lovely selection of fireworks and great narrative it was a wonderful experience! But the queue management was not very good! The baggage claim was slow! Try not taking any bag with you! Small purse is fine!
