Alhambra officials have proclaimed July 10 "710 Day," a celebration of their efforts to close the gap between the 710 and 210 freeways. The city will hold a family festival that day from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the arch park at Fremont Avenue and Valley Boulevard, including informational booths, activities, and live entertainment.
