Festive Tree Lighting and Menorah Lighting in South Pasadena

After taking last year off, South Pasadenans were out en masse at Thursday’s Farmers Market for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony.

It has rapidly grown into such a large tree that the South Pasadena Arts Council needed city assistance to decorate it, including a large bow at the very top (thanks to SPARC founder Lissa Reynolds, which is another story!)
