Watermelon Festival Pasadena Rose Bowl August 16, 17, 18 – 2013

FREE Watermelon All Weekend

While we are sad that the City of Los Angeles and Department of Parks & Rec have made Sunland Park an unaffordable and unworkable venue, we are very excited about our opportunity to partner with the Rose Bowl for this year’s Watermelon Festival. The Rose Bowl’s generosity has allowed Southern California’s longest running, all volunteer, non-profit festival to continue into it’s 52nd consecutive year of family fun and charitable activities. We’re excited to see you at the 2013 Watermelon Festival!
