Restored historic Pasadena Exhibition Hall reopens

The Pasadena, Calif., community came out in force to help re-open one of city’s oldest public event buildings. Hundreds of local residents, city officials, community leaders and arts aficionados were on hand for the historic Pasadena Civic Auditorium Exhibition Hall’s ribbon‐cutting ceremony on Feb. 8, followed by an exhilarating patriotic orchestral performance by MUSE/IQUE.
