Take Holiday Guests to “Altadena in the Rose Parade” Exhibit at Community Center

Altadena 1957 Rose Parade float

“We have added Saturday hours to make it easier for area residents and their holiday houseguests to visit our exhibit, ‘Altadena in the Rose Parade,’ at the Community Center,” said Historical Society President Jane Brackman.

“We will be open from 2-4 p.m. on Saturdays through Jan. 16 to accommodate people who can’t come in during our weekday hours, and also those who are visiting the area for the big parade and football game.”

The Historical Society’s archives and new museum corridor are also open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and by appointment for groups.

The Historical Society exhibit is in the Altadena Community Center, 730 E. Altadena Drive, 91001.

“Altadena in the Rose Parade” is an extensive display of vintage and recent photographs, documents, newspaper articles and memorabilia about Altadena’s 70 years of participation in Pasadena’s Rose Parade.

“The Valley Hunt Club, which originated and managed the parade, was founded in an Altadena mansion; the parade’s first Queen was an Altadena girl; and for many years Altadena even held its own, local contests for a Queen and Court to ride on our community’s floats,” Brackman said.
