Mariposa Street will be shut down between Lake and El Molino and Sept. 10 for a street festival that will involve a farmer's market, food booths, job fair and other games and entertainment.
The event, called the Altadena City Wide Outreach and Festival, is being put on by a local Christian Center, in conjunction with several local organizations and businesses. There will be more than 60 retail businesses represented there, as well as live entertainment, art exhibits, a children's area and more.
The festival was discussed Tuesday at the Altadena Town Council meeting by Phlunte Riddle, a local resident and volunteer who works for the Pasadena Police Department (her work with the festival is not part of her work with the department).
The festival has received permits to close down the streets of Altadena, an idea much discussed on Altadena Patch in conjunction with a farmer's market and other community festival ideas.
Riddle told the Council Tuesday that the festival is still seeking vendors interested in booths and sponsors.
She said she would personally be teaching a class on Facebook and online safety for teenagers and there will also be a class for seniors on protecting their wills and estates from fraud.
The event is free for all who wish to participate and will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
