Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach

April 12-14 Long Beach will host what is likely the largest event of the year not only for Long Beach, but maybe all of Southern California, the Grand Prix of Long Beach. For visiting race fans this is an exciting event. The image below was taken by New Flower’s John Johnson when he attended the race in 2012.

Long Beach Grand Prix

For residents, small business owners, and employees who spend their time in downtown Long Beach it can be a stressful week with even more traffic and worse parking. Large franchise businesses should expect to be very busy with the anticipated 200,000 attendees.

Many small businesses downtown however, may not do so well if their products and services don’t appeal to race fans. We hope that anyone visiting Long Beach for the race spend some of their money with local businesses. 

We also hope our studio’s friends and clients who enjoy the race atmosphere during race week and the days leading up to it have a great time. If that’s not you, downtown Long Beach might be a place to avoid. New Flower Studio, near Cal State Long Beach will be open and piercing with our normal business hours.
