Many thanks for supporting market On behalf of the Burbank Farmer’s Market Guild, the Providence St. Joseph Foundation, and our California Farmers, I would like to thank all of our market patrons from Burbank, and the surrounding valley area, for their support for the past 25 successful years. Through the market and the Providence St. Joseph Foundation, many people are able to receive necessary medical treatment. It is wonderful to see the same friendly and happy patrons every Saturday, and it is an honor for us to be able to make this pleasant experience happen for so many.

It's Saturday night and the lot behind Bob's Big Boy restaurant on Riverside is once again taken over by the hot rods of The Road Kings. The parking spaces are resplendent with steel, rubber and chrome. The meet-up is part reunion and part history lesson for the hundred or so roadsters gathering at the place where the sport of drag racing grew up. Though 60 years after the Road Kings were founded, the boys aren't lobbing spitballs over the diner booths at each other. They no longer look over their shoulders from behind the wheels of their Model Ts, searching for the all-too-familiar blink of the Burbank P.D. (in recent years, a former chief of police even joined the crew)
