Free Winter Wonderland in Old Pasadena Nov. 23!

Twenty tons of cold wet snow is predicted to hit Old Pasadena Friday Nov. 23 and the whole family is invited to play in it for free!  The free winter fun day is 4pm to 8pm and includes live reindeer, a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony and the arrival of Santa Claus.

At 4pm Old Pasadena opens its free winter wonderland located on Holly Street between Raymond and Fair Oaks. Kids can play in 20 tons of real snow, see live reindeer on a break from the North Pole, and create in a kid’s craft area presented by the Armory Center for the Arts. Adults can try their own creative hand with free painting classes offered by Wine and Canvas. All the while there will be festive live musical performances.

Old Town Pasadena free Christmas tree lighting

Before 6pm head over to One Colorado when Santa arrives to light the 30-foot Christmas tree and the 2013 Rose Parade Queen makes one of her first public appearances. Please bring a new unwrapped toy or book for the Charles Cherniss Tournament of Toys toy drive, which benefits children throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Children and adults who donate an unwrapped toy or book will receive a FREE photo with Santa at One Colorado that night only.

Throughout the free snow day look for numerous in-store events and promotions at more than 50 of Old Pasadena’s merchants.

Live Free!
