Guess what it’s time for already- Make Music Pasadena! If you like music and saving money, check this event out in Pasadena. It’s FREE- TOTALLY FREE! – and filled with music. It’s a great place to get exercise and people watch and dance. Click the image above to see all the stages and map. There are stages and bands playing all over this route, and check out the shops and restaurants nearby. I’ve gone multiple years and can confidently say it’s a fun time. Plan to park on side streets (avoid Colorado if you’re in a car) and do a lot of walking.
