What are you doing this weekend? How about joining the 50th annual Holiday Look-In Home Tour? This is a self-guided tour of four gorgeous homes decorated exquisitely for the holidays. The point is to see old and new architecture at its best, with the magic that is added to them by fabulous floral holiday decorations. While you walk through the homes, you’ll also enjoy music by members of the Pasadena Symphony, since this event’s proceeds are meant to support the orchestra. The tour will happen this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 2 and 3, from 9:30 am to 4 pm., rain or shine. This is an event for 12 year olds and above, and because lots of walking is involved, you should wear comfortable shoes. Although this is the age of Instagram, no photography is allowed. The tickets are good for both days, so you can pace yourself. They are $35 if pre-purchased online here, and will be $40 on both days of the event if purchased during tour hours at the Will Call booth placed at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. The ticket will also give you access to a Boutique (where you can buy gorgeous holiday presents) that will be open from 9 am to 5 pm at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, located at 150 N. Madison Ave.
You should also know about the Pasadena Symphony’s popular Holiday Candlelight concert, scheduled for Dec. 16, both at 4 pm and at 7 pm, at the All Saints Church (132 N. Euclid Ave). This concert will feature Lisa Vroman as vocalist, and the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, The Donald Brinegar Singers, and the L.A. Bronze Handbell Ensemble. The concert will be 75 minutes long with no intermission, and tickets start at $20, available online here.
You have to love December in Pasadena, with so many fantastic things to do!
