On May 19, community members can transport themselves back to those idyllic days as the South Pasadena Educational Foundation (SPEF) presents Parti Gras 2018 – A “Totally Awesome” ‘80s event featuring none other than DJ icon Richard Blade, a vintage arcade, and the most excellent music. It will be totally rad!

Parti Gras, the South Pasadena Educational Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year, is scheduled to take place from 6 to 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, at the Arroyo Seco Golf Course.
