Last year’s celebration of the 128th birthday was a fantastic event. This year’s event on June 28 at the Pasadena Museum of History should draw young and old alike. – Photos by Terry Miller

The Crown City Celebrates 129 Years

Everyone is invited to join the free community festivities on Sunday, June 28, 1 to 4 p.m., as Pasadena Museum of History and the City of Pasadena present “Happy Birthday Pasadena: Forward Motion!” Mayor Terry Tornek will cut the cake at 2:30 p.m., marking Pasadena’s 129th year since incorporation. View fascinating cars, bicycles, and other vehicles that were innovative for their time – both a century ago and today.
