Colorado Boulevard is one of those streets that is known to millions of people around the world, many of whom have never set foot in California. In this case, it's because Colorado serves as the thoroughfare that hosts the annual Rose Parade, the float-tastic flower-power procession that precedes the Rose Bowl college football game in Pasadena, California. During the rest of the year, it's known as a great spot for shopping, dining and people watching for locals and tourists alike. But on a certain Sunday in May, it is also known as a place to see Prancing Horses. You see, Colorado Blvd. in Old Town Pasadena is the site of the Concorso Ferrari event.

One of the largest annual gatherings of Maranello's finest, Concorso Ferrari 2010 is expected to draw more than 100 classic and late-model GTs, sportscars and supercars for a free-to-the-public event like no other. The combined value of the vehicles is expected to top $100 million, with nearly one-fifth of that amount accounted for by one particular model – a Pebble Beach-winning 250 Series I Cab. Other highlights on the entry list include a Cavallino Best of Show 250 GT SWB, the Agnelli 400SA (fresh from the Ferrari Museum in Maranello), a Concorso Italiano Platinum winning 400SA, and one of six Vignale 225S racers produced.

Organized by the Ferrari Club of America, Southwest Region, the Concorso will stretch across several blocks of Colorado, from Pasadena Ave. to Raymond, and will run from 10 am to 3 pm on Sunday, May 16. The event will be a judged concours for pre-'99 cavallini, with unjudged displays of newer cars including not just those from Ferrari, but Maserati, Aston Martin, Lotus, Spyker, and Mercedes-Benz models as well.
