The South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce warmly invites the community to a unique evening celebrating the joy of Valentine’s Day alongside the festivity of the Lunar New Year.
Join us on Saturday, February 10, from 3 PM to 8 PM for the Winter Arts Crawl, an event where love, culture, and art unite.
Laurie Wheeler, CEO of the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, shares, “We’re proud
to host an event that brings together diverse celebrations. The Arts Crawl this year is an
exciting blend of communal and cultural festivities, all set against the backdrop of our city’s
