A variety of hybrid cars and bicycles may be seen and ogled at a “clean air” show and workshops on yard design and turf rebates (for South Pas residents) and water wise plants and irrigating them efficiently will be sprinkled throughout the day.

Participants include West Coast Arborists, experts in tree maintenance, and South Pasadena Beautiful, a local nonprofit that presents a yearly garden tour as well as tree plantings, replacement, median upgrades, and clean up.

If exercise is appealing, health and fitness vendors will have booths and attendees may participate in the “Greenest Fastest Mile” race. Get ready, as the first start time isn’t until 3 p.m. and the temperature on the 2oth is forecast to peak in the 90s with 59% humidity. For us, these stats are an invitation to “pass” the ice cold lemonade, please, though we’re sure for others this hot, semi-sticky situation will be a call to action.

The Fastest Greenest Mile is being marketed as being along the historic Route 66 (Mission St. and Marengo Ave.). After visiting half a dozen sites, we fairly certain Garfield Park is a few blocks east of said Route 66—Fair Oaks Avenue, from Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena south to Huntington Drive is part of the original 1926 alignment, as well as the 1940 alignment (Historic66.com)
