Lake Avenue (next to Macy’s at The Shops on Lake) with family friendly activities around the district! Presented by the South Lake Business Association with fun for the whole family! Guests can enjoy: free holiday activities, in-store specials, holiday characters, a scavenger hunt, live music and carolers, holiday crafts for kids, trackless train rides, horse and carriage rides, and prizes. Free Parking available at the Corporate Center Pasadena parking structure located at 251 S. Lake Avenue.
This enormously popular event has become an anticipated community celebration, offering visitors a chance to view four distinctive homes in the Pasadena area, decorated for the holiday season by prominent floral designers. This year’s designers include Jacob Maarse. Tantalizing to elegant, inventive to endearing, the annual Holiday Look In home tour delivers visual delights and this year will be no exception.
Proceeds from this event support the Pasadena Symphony and POPS annual concert series, as well as the educational outreach and community engagement programs such as the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra, and Pasadena All-City Orchestra. These programs continually offer robust musical training and personal development for young musicians throughout the San Gabriel Valley, fostering music appreciation and aptitude in future generations.
Celebrate the season and enjoy a family holiday favorite, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, with A Noise Within.
