Happy Birthday Pasadena . . . Western Style

Happy Birthday Pasadena California!  For their official 145th birthday celebration, a western theme was chosen for the big event.  Lewis Events was honored to be chosen to assist in making their birthday extravaganza a huge success.

Crowds gathered throughout the day for the trick roping show with the beautiful Fenyes Mansion serving as the perfect backdrop.  Featured performers in the show were Cowgirl Christy, Cowboy Brett, and Cowgirl Emily spinning their trick ropes and cracking the bullwhip.  Guests kicked up their heels with some western line dancing as part of the entertainment.

One of the more popular activities was gold panning with crowds gathered all day long.  A few miners struck it rich as yells of eureka could be heard all the way up in the north forty.

Party Till the Cows Come Home

Nothing like having a western party in a milking barn.  Our bovine friends were polite, quiet, did not eat too much and had a very positive attitude as long as they got their turn on the milking machine.Lewis Events was proud to be part of a company party held in the Millenial Barn located at the Orange County Fairgrounds.  It’s an ideal location for a western theme party, offering a perfect country atmosphere . . . . cows included.

The guests enjoyed a variety of interesting activities including gold panning, cowboy games, line dancing, trick roping & whip cracking show, virtual calf roping, great food and lively music.

Right in the middle of the party festivities, the cows filed in and in an orderly fashion, took their place at the milking machine.  It wasn’t long before the guests took notice and crowded to see the milking take place.  I must admit this was an interesting first for Lewis Events and definitely added another dimension to the event.
