Pageantry, poetry and music are all planned for the mayor’s annual State of the City report Thursday, Jan. 28, at 6:30 p.m. at La Salle High School, 3880 E. Sierra Madre Blvd.
Free and open to the public, the annual festivities offer the city a chance to reflect on recent accomplishments and press forward with future plans for the environment, children and youths, economic development, arts and culture, public safety, transportation, the city budget and more.
Following this year’s theme “Charting a New Course,” the event will also feature the Marine Corps Reserve Center color guard, a reading from a book of poetry published by Pasadena’s Red Hen Press, a video presentation and information tables showcasing city programs and services.
Look for free parking in the La Salle lot on Sierra Madre Boulevard as well as 50 numbered spaces on the north side of the parking lot at Sierra Madre United Methodist Church, 695 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. Handicapped parking will be available behind the school (use the Michillinda Avenue entrance). Please be mindful of neighbors and do not park on Canfield Road.

The event will be replayed on KPAS (schedule will be announced) and via streaming video at www.cityofpasadena.net/publicaffairs.
