august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.
i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania. we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena. when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg. i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city. i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind, and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena. i am going to include ten positives and ten negatives, alternating back and forth each day. concluding with my top ten things about life in pasadena.
yesterday was the first negative item, today i'll move on to the next positive one...
pasadena has a plethora of free community events throughout the year. one of my favorites is artnight pasadena - an openhouse for the local museums (such as pasadena museum of california art, pictured above) and art galleries which is free to all. the night includes shuttle service from venue to venue, foodtrucks, walking and biking tours, and much more.
