The Return of Summer Concerts at Pasadena's Leavitt Pavilion
If you're looking to save a few bucks but still get that Hollywood Bowl-style experience, Pasadena's Leavitt Pavilion concert series has just gotten underway. The outdoor band shell features live jazz, world, folk and Latin performances all summer long.
The best part: It's free. Pack a picnic.
Maria and Blogger Preschooler frequently visit the Leavitt on Wednesday nights for the weekly Children's night. Tonight, the famed Bob Baker Marionettes take the stage. Show starts at 7 p.m.
The Leavitt Pavilion Pasadena is in Old Pasadena at Memorial Park, right off the Fair Oaks exit from the 210 freeway, and on the corner of Walnut and Raymond. There's a Gold Line stop right there at Memorial Park (as well as a playground, in case the kids get bored).
