The seventh annual Identity Festival organized by the Armenian Community Coalition of Pasadena was a smashing success on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Victory Park that day was transformed into a bee hive with more than 4,000 people, Armenians and non-Armenians alike, from all walks of life were in and out through out the day from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. in the evening. This event was co-sponsored by Congresswoman Judy Chu, The City of Pasadena, and the Pasadena Library.
The theme of the day was to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the first Armenian settlement in the city of Pasadena, which was incorporated into cityhood just three years earlier. I was pleasantly impressed that the Mistresses of the Ceremony were young and talented Armenian Ladies from our community, namely Nayri Krouzian and Serah Chahinian, who masterfully conducted the program in English and Armenian respectively. Another young artist, Sevag Chahinian, was the D.J. for the day.
