Lemonade Brigade, Duarte, Happy Birthday Pasadena, 2012

Everyone is invited to join the free community festivities on Sunday, June 12, 1:00 to 4:00 pm, as Pasadena Museum of History and the City of Pasadena present Happy Birthday Pasadena: Marvelous 130! This year’s theme will incorporate the carefree spirit of our summer exhibition Flying Horses & Mythical Beasts: The Magical World of Carousel Animals with family-friendly entertainment and activities throughout the garden including circus aerial dance performances by Orange County Aerial Arts, automated music by Southern California Band Organs, and hands-on craft stations for the young and young-at-heart.

Of course a contingent of Pasadena VIPs will be on hand for the cake cutting ceremony and – even better – sharing delicious cake with everyone in attendance. Visit this page regularly for updates on entertainment, activities and refreshments, and sponsors for Pasadena’s 130th birthday celebration.

Free Admission & Parking!
