East of the City of Pasadena sitting right next to the Santa Anita Racetrack is the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Gardens, a beautiful 127-acre botanical garden perfect to spend your summer days in. This year they are putting on more events then ever throughout the summer season from concerts to art displays!
Here is a list of all the events that are going on in the month of July:
