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.
The Pasadena museum of History would like to invite the Pasadena blogging community to be a part of this event as featured participants in the “Bridges to Community” section. They feel you are Pasadena’s eyes and ears; you share Pasadena-related thoughts, images, inspirations, and news from unique perspectives. They would love the chance to introduce you in person and give you a chance to chat one-on-one with members of the community.
Details: 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.
How to Participate: Please contact Jeannette Bovard or Ardis Willwerth via email or phone to sign up for a shift and to obtain further information about the day.
