Thanks for stopping by my virtual South Pasadena front porch! In 2018  Glimpses of South Pasadena turned 10 years old, which was just the right time to take a break.*

Find out more about the history of Glimpses here.  Feel free to browse the tabs above and the many (too many) links on the bottom right for thousands of views of my favorite little town in the big city.  (All the video and slideshows can be found in the Video tab.)  I'm proud to have left a decade-long time capsule of my beautiful city.

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.
