Most of the memorable scenes in George Lucas’ timeless, coming-of-age movie were filmed in the city of #Petaluma in 1972. On May 27th, 2014 Petaluma held its Salute to American Graffiti annual celebration with over 450 classic American cars, cruising the main drag, rock-n-roll music and the happy days of the 50s and early 60s. All proceeds from this event is to benefit charities in our community projects, schools, and other programs that focus on the arts, history, safety and welfare of Petaluma.
