This weekend is full of exciting and new events.
And there will be a big announcement regarding Latino Heritage and the summer on Monday.
In the meantime...here's an image from the Pasadena Digital History Collaboration - we're a contributing organization. This image is part of a current exhibit: Roots of Education in Pasadena: 1870s to 1920s. We worked staff from The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, Pasadena City College, Pasadena Museum of History, and Pasadena Public Library.
These are teachers from the Junipero Serra School: one of two Mexican Schools in Pasadena. It's one of the PUSD images that we were aware of and were able to share for the exhibit.
Saturday is Make Music Pasadena. There'll be over 100 free concerts in the city. One of our favorite groups is La Santa Cecilia. They'll be performing at 1:00 p.m. on the Luckman Stage on El Molino. If you can 't make their performance you'll have only 99 other choices from which to choose.
If you're passing by the Paseo Colorado from one concert to the next you might see local artist Liz Espinoza. Don't know what she'll be drawing this year. She'll be one of about 600 artists participating in the 2011 Pasadena Chalk Festival.
A new event in town is the Mumbo Gumbo Fest presented by Chef Claude Beltran. You need to buy tickets and make reservations for this event - seating is limited.
