Marengo Elementary School PTA in partnership with the City of South Pasadena and the South Pasadena Chinese-American Club are thrilled to invite you to this unique drop-in experience on Sunday, March 6 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to celebrate Lunar New Year at Orange Grove Park in South Pasadena.

Join us as community and culture join forces to ring in the Year of the Tiger! Lion dancers, tigers and more will frame a fun and educational ride through the Great Race Trail – a trail lined with stalls sponsored by South Pasadena community organizations, Marengo Mandarin Dual Immersion classrooms and other sponsors emphasizing the importance of the twelve zodiac animals. In addition to treats and gifts, there will be a food stand for families who pre-order. Among the choices are a box of dim sum samples, a box of mochi donuts, and a boba drink. Thanks to Pacific Culinary Group and SP favorite Teamorrow for their sponsorship!


Each participating guest must register for a 30-minute time slot. Select the time slot you want when registering.

Pre-registered guests will arrive during their 30-minute time slot. Pre-ordered passports will be given to children with a small bag to collect goodies along the route of the Great Race. The passport will tell the story of The Great Race and have a place for children to collect stamps at each stand. La Grande Course will end with a chance to slide to the finish line. We will limit up to 150 people in the park per 30 minutes, so please show up before your chosen time to maximize your experience and leave the park at your designated exit time.

Buy a pre-registered child entry (2-12 years old) for $5.

There will be no charge for pre-registered adults.

For those who do not register in advance, it will be $7 per child (2-12 years old) and $3 per adult at the door on the day of the event. Admission on the day of entry is limited and not guaranteed due to capacity.


A box of dim sum samples and/or a box of mochi donuts provided by the Pacific Culinary Group and/or a boba drink from Teamorrow must be pre-ordered by FEBRUARY 20, 2022 and will be available for pickup at the finish line.

Masks are mandatory during the event. Thank you for your participation; we look forward to celebrating the Year of the Tiger with you.
