Happy Birthday Pasadena: Wish upon a Star!!
Celebrate Pasadena’s 132nd Birthday
Sunday, June 3, 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Pasadena celebrates its 132nd year with robots and Stormtroopers, music by Gypsy Jambo!, makeup and monsters, face painting, balloon art, activities stations galore, and – of course – birthday cake! The free, family-friendly party for the community takes its cue from the Museum’s popular exhibition, Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Pasadena. Party-goers are welcome to dress as their favorite science fiction characters, or come as you are.
Festivities begin at 1:00 pm. The official cake cutting ceremony with Mayor Terry Tornek, City Council members, and other VIPs is scheduled for 2:00 pm.
