Montclair: Mission Tiki Drive-In 50th Anniversary Bash

Filed under: Events,Los Angeles,News,Palm Springs,Tiki — Humuhumu @ 3:16 am

The Mission Tiki Drive-In has announced plans for a party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the drive-in. There had been tentative plans for an April party to celebrate the drive-in’s Grand (Re-)Opening as a newly-tikified joint, but it was decided to move the event back to August and make it an anniversary party instead. It’s scheduled for Saturday, August 5, and plans include bands, b-movies, a car show and vendors. As noted in a previous Humu Kon Tiki post, the organizers are the same folks responsible for the annual Drive Invasion at the Starlight Drive-In in Atlanta, which is a major event there. The Mission Tiki is between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, in Montclair.

    The Drive Invasion Teri puts together in Atlanta is one of the funnest events of the year. Locals really make it better with things like Johhny Knox’s trailer brought in and set up as “Trailer Vic’s Tiki Bar.” A great time!
