Happy Birthday Pasadena
Each June, Happy Birthday Pasadena celebrates Pasadena’s history and diverse community with fun for all ages.
Howdy, pardner! Our frontier town celebrated 133 years of cityhood and we had the Official Party fer the whole community. Townsfolk enjoyed a rip-roaring time at this shindig with a free exhibition, foot-stompin’ entertainment, and delicious birthday cake, plus crafts and special activities for the small fry.

ROPIN’ & STOMPIN’ FUN! The Entertainment Corral featured trick ropin’, line dancing’, and rousing Western tunes.
HIT PAY DIRT! The Event Partner Outposts and Finnish Folk Art Museum offered fun and fascinatin’ interactive experiences to delight young ‘uns and cowpokes of all ages. Visitors punched their Pony Express Passport at all 10 Outposts!
HAVE A STAGECOACH ADVENTURE! Townsfolk explored an authentic reproduction of an 1860s Wells Fargo Concord Stagecoach, one of America’s most legendary vehicles. They could have a look at the stagecoach and imagine what it was like to travel coast to coast with other adventurers, mail, and goods.
CHECK OUT THE FANCY PONIES & WILD CRITTERS! Whoa! Those are some right smart ponies on display in the Giddy Up: Children Take the Reins exhibit. Carousel horses and toy critters look mighty purdy sittin’ there on display.
CREATE! Younguns topped off their Sunday best with a genuine cowboy hat custom made by their very own hands under the expert guidance of Art 2 Go’s “Miss Helen, the Fastest Crafter in the West.”
SING PURDY! CHOW DOWN! Mayor Terry Tornek, led all of us townsfolk in a birthday serenade to our City. Have a look-see at the splendiferous Birthday Cake baked up special for this occasion by Baja Ranch Supermarket before the ceremony, then we chowed down on the sweet goodness.
