Called the "Best Public Lights Display in the Nation" by USA Today. The Festival of Lights is an event for the entire family. Touting over 4 million lights and hundreds of animated figures of snowmen, angels and elves,, guests should save extra space on their phone for taking pictures in front of the world's largest man-made misteltoe. The event is also stocking up on delectable sweets so make sure you save a few notches on your belt for that as well. Food and sights aside, taking the metro to check out this once a year event will definitely save you time from gridlock freeway and may help you keep that loving Christmas spirit
Pasadena Museum of California Art on Union Street
Bucking the tradition of more serious pop-ups (temporary dining installations), we have one that takes a tongue in cheek approach with a wink and a nod to the avocado toast crowd. Foodie Space will be popping up in Pasadena Museum of California Art at Union starting November 21st We are signal boosting this event to: self professed foodies, professionals, lovers of kitsch, haters of kale... or to those that want to see what this unique installation has to offer, all for just 20 bucks. We're not going to ruin the entire surprise here but there's rumors that there's going to be an homage to Schriracha.
November 24th is Small Business Saturday. This consumer event was a promotional campaign by American Express, but it has become holiday dogma just like Black Friday. The difference between Black Friday and Small Business Saturday is that there hasn't been a death on SMS, so rest assured you can spend your well-earned bucks in safety. Kidding aside, this is a great event for those Christmas shoppers looking for something unique and the fine people at LA Original has you covered. Shop in safety, shop local, shop LA Original: support your home town and flaunt it at the same time.
All proceeds from the LA Original program received by the Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles will go to supporting the Downtown Women’s Center’s “Made by DWC” program that teaches job training and maker skills to women transitioning out of homelessness.
