Bloggers Invited to Pasadena Birthday Party
On June 22, 2013, Pasadena Museum of History will host the official birthday celebration for Pasadena’s 127th birthday. In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Colorado Street Bridge in 2013, their theme this year is Happy Birthday Pasadena – Celebrating Bridges.
The Pasadena landmark’s centennial will be both the primary celebratory focus of this free community event and also the catalyst to an exploration of the theme of “bridging” via interactive “History Pods” that will feature six sub-themes (Bridges to… Understanding, Community, Exploration, Imagination, Health, and History) involving collaborations with Pasadena Heritage, JPL, Kidspace Museum, Side Street Productions, Sister Cities Committee, and other local organizations and businesses.
Happy Birthday Pasadena will take place from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday, June 22, on the campus of Pasadena Museum of History. We’d like to schedule you for 1-hour shifts during the afternoon. The birthday cake ceremony will occupy most of the attendees during the 3:00 hour, so there will be three shifts available, at 1:00, 2:00 & 4:00. The activities are outdoors, however the museum will have you shaded, along with tables and chairs. The museum will also have wi-fi availability in the location that is planned for the Community Pod.
