Pasadena Chalk Festival
600 local artists using 25,000 sticks of pastel chalk are turning the sidewalks of Pasadena into works of colorful art. This is the second and final day of the Chalk Festival...and when it's all over tonight, they're going to turn on the hoses and wash the artwork away. See it while you can! Head over to Paseo Colorado between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Free.
