Rotary President Dan Watson tells us, “Taste of South Pasadena is not only our largest fundraiser that supports our local and international projects, it’s also a great opportunity to get out and explore our downtown and the many great dining choices that are here. This has become one of the City’s premiere community events and we look forward to seeing our old friends, and making new ones, at Eats on the Streets.”
