If I’m going to cover this I should begin now – before Pasadena turns 126.
On June 11th the Grand Old City of Pasadena kicked off its celebration of 125 years as a city with a Birthday Party hosted at the Pasadena Museum of History. But you can just call it the “Quasquicentennial” party. Cake was included as it should be. The celebration will continue with other events throughout the year.
This initial event went from noon til 7pm. These events, simple or large, take a brunch of planning, organizing, sponsors, and dedicated volunteers to pull of successfully. I squeezed 90 minutes of partying into my schedule last Saturday. And yet even in that short time my camera overloaded with way so many photographs that I can show only a tiny sample here. I’m not gonna say much. Just let the pictures tell their story. Here’s just a slice of those in a sorta slideshow.
And so here we are…
But before we got up to that main stage we were met at the museum gate by some Vintage Vehicles
The bankers wanted to present their history as well
And the old Pasadena Fire Dept didn’t want to be forgotten
An old Oldsmobile made itself at home
I thought someone looked like Al Capone to me!
And that’s your car show portion of our birthday party
I Gotta Hit the Road. Stay Thirsty My Friends
