#67: Old Town Pasadena

With its historic streets and plethora of galleries, theaters, restaurants and shops, it's clear why Old Town Pasadena can brag that it's "The Real Downtown." (Oh snap!) Here are some things to check out if you're in the area..

This is a yearly event that takes place every June for one weekend only. Hundreds of artists cover the sidewalks of Old Pasadena with stunning chalk recreations of masterpieces as well as original art.

Another June event! With a lineup heavy on the indie rock, this festival is the perfect hipster hangout. The best part? It's free!

The Old Pasadena Film Festival is a free four week movie series held in July. It's the largest free outdoor film festival in SoCal, and is guaranteed to show something for everyone.

This impressive building is located at 100 North Garfield Ave. It's pretty hard to miss. It was designed in the early Renaissance style and construction was completed in 1927. It's worth a visit to admire the stunning architecture of this hall.
