Celebrating pasadena's incorporation in 1886?
Bellis must be correct. The place does not possess the amount of high festoonery in decoration to warrant the occasion of President Theodore Roosevelt's visit. When in 1903 he was paraded down to the Arroyo Seco where he remarked to the Mayor of Pasadena this: "Oh, Mr. Mayor, don't let them spoil that! Just keep it as it is."[That was just the momentum that was needed, and within eight years the City of Pasadena began acquiring acreage in the Arroyo Seco.] ~ stolen from your post of June 2009Thank you, Ann Erdman. :-)SAVE HAHA! Nothing has changed because it's not supposed to!

Colorado Blvd. Salvation Army Band visiting?
celebrating the end of the civil war
rose rodriguez said... End of the civil war on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena.
Was the civil war on Colorado? Was it between John Muir and Blair?
Legend has it that on Sunday, January 1 , 1893, the 1st and only "Crown of Thorns" processional March took place. Organized by farmers being squeezed out of their land by Pasadena's eastward expansion at the famed "aunt Harriet's Saloon" in what was then called Garvanza.
It was the beginning of the "never on Sunday" rule the remains in place today for Rose Parade.
