From my friends at the Pasadena Museum of Hisotry
PATRIOT DAY – FAMILY FREE DAY
Sunday, September 11, 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Pasadena Museum of History, 470 W. Walnut St., Pasadena 91103
Join us for this free family day honoring the memory of those lost on 9/11 and celebrating the brave men & women in our local police and fire departments. Visit history displays and information tables provided by Pasadena Fire and Police Departments. Take your picture with a hook and ladder or a vintage police car. Join artist Katrina Alexy’s “Design a Flag Workshop” and create your own patriotic version of Old Glory inspired by images of American flags throughout history. Then make and decorate a clay stand to place the flag in and take it home as a keepsake. (This workshop is suitable for all ages, but be sure to wear clothes that can get clay/paint on them).
Play games in the garden, including badminton, horseshoes and bocce ball and then take a cool break with free ice cream from Baskin Robbins. Of course our History Center Galleries and the Museum Store will be open all afternoon — and everyone is admitted free on this special celebratory day!
Tickets: Free admission, activities & ice cream
