Locals will gather on Mission Street Saturday, June 21, to celebrate artistic expression in the city and community. The South Pasadena and SPACE Summer Arts Crawl — founded to spark creativity — will highlight music and visual art for its eleventh year. Festivities throughout the event will run from 5:00-9:00 p.m.
Activities & Music: Many shops in South Pas’ business district advertise sales and events for the afternoon. At De Milo Design Studio & Letterpress, attendees are invited to create marble flower garlands. Visitors can stop by the SugarMynt and SPARC galleries to browse new installations. For live performances, Hotbox Vintage — hosting its grand opening — and Retreat are among many stores featuring local talent.
Family & Children: This year, children can participate in a unique family art activity near the South Pasadena Historical Museum. They can help create a large “Scrabble” game by decorating tiles on the lawn bordering the train station. Kids can opt to get their faces painted at Rosebuds and Rosestuds, or they can head over to Two Kids Coffee to partake in a “relief printing” workshop.
Food & Drink: There will be two food trucks, one on each end of Mission Street and snacks and drinks will also be available in many of the participating shops. Marz will feature cupcakes and cookies, while The Moo on Mission will serve their homemade ice cream in waffle cones.
