Looking for Something to Do? Free Events Nov. 22 to 28

Here are events scheduled Saturday, Nov. 22, to Friday, Nov. 28.

All events are free, so take a look -- and don't you dare say there's nothing to do in Pasadena!

Create beautiful mixed media art tags to spruce up your holiday gifts and decor using everyday materials and your imagination Saturday, Nov. 22, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at La Pintoresca Branch Library. All ages, from children to adults, are welcome. Space is limited, so call (626) 744-7268 to reserve your spot!

Bag or box some non-perishable food items from your pantry and cupboards -- for humans and/or pets -- and bring them to Parking Lot 1 at the southeast corner of Colorado Boulevard and Hill Avenue on the Pasadena City College campus where the second annual Million Meals Marathon Food Drive will take place from 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, to 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 23.

Children ages 8 to 12 are invited to enter the Tiny Tales writing contest and share their own stories. Pick up a contest form at any Pasadena Public Library site, write a tiny tale of no more than 55 words and turn it in no later than Monday, Nov. 24. Winners will be announced in December.

Harpsichordist Sonia Lee will perform Wednesday, Nov. 26, from 12:10 to 12:40 p.m. for the popular Music at Noon recital series at Pasadena Presbyterian Church.

This week's film on the big screen in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library Wednesday, Nov. 26, at 1 p.m. is "Miss Potter" (2006, PG) starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor in the story of Beatrix Potter, author of the beloved and best-selling children's book "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," and her struggle for love, happiness and success.

At Old Pasadena's Home for the Holidays celebration Friday, Nov. 28, from 4 to 8 p.m. on Holly Street between Fair Oaks and Raymond avenues, frolic in the snow, get creative in the kids' craft village, snap photos of Santa and Mrs. Claus and enjoy live music performed by the Pasadena Symphony Brass Quintet, Caleigh Chapman, Burbank Music Academy and the Beverly Belles.

One Colorado will kick off the holiday season with a community party Friday, Nov. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. that will include live music by Leftover Cuties (and dancing if you're so inspired), photo booth fun (Santa may pop in for a photo bomb from time to time!), hot cocoa and cookies. Consider bringing an unwrapped toy for the Charles Cherniss Tournament of Toys Collection Drive to make a low-income child's Christmas a little brighter.
