Montrose Travel celebrated their 60th anniversary this year by combining their Summer Awards party and their popular Snowpalooza event at the Montrose Travel-owned 2349 Honolulu Avenue parking lot on July 9, 2016.

The event was the perfect combination of elegance and down-home fun with over 300 employees, family members, clients, partners, local officials and dignitaries in attendance. Guests were greeted with music and a giant 40-foot banner spanning across two buildings that read, “Montrose Travel Celebrating 60 Years of Excellence!” Nestled between Montrose Travel’s Corporate and Leisure buildings and encircled by beautifully decorated tables of blue and white, the immediate focus was the 12-foot mound of snow. An amazing 55 tons of snow was blown on stacked bales of hay to withstand the warmer weather. The smell of delicious food filled the air as children and adults alike swarmed the snow mound and tossed around beach balls. It was a truly unique event for a truly unique company. Only Montrose Travel could bring snow to Southern California in July.

Montrose Travel president, Joe McClure, took the stage to greet and thank all guests in attendance. During his speech, he named winners for top sales and achievement awards and gave a heartfelt toast to a wonderful 60 years.
