Get Ready for the Fourth of July, South Pas Style!

Buckle up, vintage car afficionados, and take a sweet ride in the South Pas 4th of July Parade

Popping back in with info on one of my favorite South Pasadena traditions!

From the 7:00AM Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast to the 9:00PM South Pasadena High School Fireworks Show, July 4th in South Pasadena is jam-packed with all-American, small town goodness. There are many great things about the day's events, but I'm partial to the parade.  (It starts at 11:00AM downtown on Mission Street.)  Take a look at my video above for a vintage car lover's dream array of sweet rides, all gussied-up-for-the-4th.

Click here for a complete schedule of all the activities.

The only thing better than watching the parade is marching in it!

South Pasadena Can Afford $15 Per Hour Minimum Wage

By Laurie Allee

I'm stepping back onto my South Pas virtual front porch to talk about something that is important to me: raising the minimum wage in South Pasadena to $15 per hour.
