Last Saturday was most wondrous for my loyal subjects, as Pasadena Heritage kindly invited moi to stroll at the Colorado Bridge Street Party.
Flanked by Princess Valerie and Sir Ben McGinty, Knight of the Arts, I made my way through the masses from one end of the festival to the other. I caught quite a few performances, such as Aluminum Marshmallow and the Age of Aquarius Horns, Mercy & the Merkettes, Wreck N Sow and Snotty Scotty and the Hankies. I also enjoyed nibbling on a baked yam and, later, a shaved ice doused with fruit flavoring.
The paparazzi caught me in action~ I even graced the frontpage of the Celebrations section Wednesday as part of Patt Diroll’s On The Town column! …You may have seen the photo of me cuddling up to Mayor Bill Bogaard in front of a classic car, along with event co-chairwomen Tina Hart and Maggie McDermott.
But the highlight of the evening was you, dear readers. Many of you stopped me to say hello or pose for a photo. I appreciate you more than you will ever know! It’s so nice to hear that you read my stories and to find out what you like (and even what you don’t like) about the Weekend section.
Thank you to Pasadena Heritage and everyone else who made the Bridge Party such fun!!
Now carry on, as you were,
