Long Beach Grand Prix Recap

Last weekend the Long Beach Grand Prix came to our backyard.

The Long Beach Grand Prix is a open-wheel race held on a temporary road course and is the longest running major "street" race in America.

So the Mr. and I spent the weekend checking out races, exhibits, and festivities.

I've never been to car race before (sorry nascar fans), so it was a great experience!

Here are the pics from the weekend...

Celebrity Race. Celebs included Keanu Reeves, Raven Symone, Alex Trebek, and others I'm forgetting:


Keanu Reeves won! But apparently forgot to shave:

I don't know why but I think I'd be most afraid of Alex Tribec challenging you to a car race. I just have images of him yelling "In the form of a question!" as he peels out.

I love car races - especially the formula one. I have become a Speed channel addict. Sad isn't it?! Looks like you had fun though :)

Oh, that does sound like fun!

I am not a racing fan, but racing with celebrities sounds like fun.

Love the outfit... too cute.

I am SO unbelievably jealous of you. If I had gotten that close to Keanu Reeves and hadn't been able to talk to him or at least stalk him for the rest of the day I would have been so sad! lol

I've never actually been to the Grand Prix. I know my parents took my brother out of school early once to go. Honestly, my main memories of it is ALL the extra traffic it creates!

That looks like such a fun day - and such nice weather - it was sunny here in Seattle for a couple of days but now we're back to rain...boo

Looks like a ton of fun! I love your dress too - I feel like I saw it somewhere... Target maybe? can't remember now but it is super cute anyway.

The bangs totally suit you - love it!
