Family Fun Day in Pasadena May 25

Join us for an exciting family fun day at La Pintoresca Park, 45 E. Washington Blvd., from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, May 25, 2013, during Pasadena’s 19th Annual Family Fun Day and Resource Fair.

Free entertainment, face painting, arts and crafts, balloon bounces, and tasty food for sale are some of the many activities planned!  Families can also participate in our Fitness Zone activities to help them move toward an active and healthier lifestyle with fitness zone challenges, basketball tournament, skating, water splash park, and a “Move Your Body” dance-off.

This year’s festivities have a special emphasis supporting First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign which advocates for communities and families to engage in physical activities and live a healthier lifestyle.

The annual resource fair will bring together more than 20 agencies to showcase some of Pasadena’s best resources including information on recreation, library, health, and non-profit services offered at low or no cost to residents. 

“Family Fun Day is an opportunity for Pasadena residents to come together as neighbors and friends to reinforce community connections, enjoy the day’s festivities and experience how parks, libraries and non-profit organizations come together to make life better,” Pasadena Human Services Director Mercy Santoro said.

This popular and free event is sponsored by the Pasadena Human Services and Recreation Department, the Pasadena Public Library, the Armory Center for the Arts, Alkebu-lan Cultural Center and the Northwest Programs Division of the City Manager’s Office.
