Bimmerfest 2012 sponsored by HorsepowerFreaks opens at 9:00 AM and runs until 3:00 PM. All BMWs are part of the show with parking costing $20 per car -- no cost for your passengers!

There will be multiple entrances to the show this year and the parking staff will help direct you to whatever gate is currently able to accept cars.

If you choose to take public transportation to the show, plan on parking somewhere else or getting to the Rose Bowl any other way -- there is a $15 walk-in ticket price. All children under 12 years old are free.

Come to Pasadena on Friday and Party with Other BMW Enthusiasts

If you are from out of town or simply want to come and get the party started a day earlier, we suggest taking a look at the following hotels close to the Rose Bowl:

Courtyard by Marriott
180 North Fair Oaks Avenue
Pasadena, CA 91103
(626) 403-7600

Hilton
