The word Pasadena means “valley” in the Chippewa Indian language. It has also been interpreted to mean “Crown of the Valley” and “Key of the Valley.” Because of this, the city has adopted the key and the crown into its official city seal. Pasadena is home to the Rose Bowl arena which was constructed in 1922 and can seat 100,184 people. It is the home to the UCLA Bruins Football team, but it also hosts many concerts and entertainment events each year. The city of Pasadena is also home to the world famous Tournament of Roses parade. Roughly 1 million people line the streets of Pasadena each year for the annual parade that features elaborate floats that average more than 100,000 blossoms each and cost an average of $75,000 to $250,000. Pasadena is home to a large population of non-indigenous parrots. While there is no certain proof, it is believed that these parrots came to live in the area when a large pet emporium burned down in 1959 and the many parrots housed there escaped. Many of the roughly 138,000 people that call Pasadena home love the parrots and consider them part of the city’s charm while others see them as loud, noisy and annoying pests.
Between all of the sporting and entertainment events as well as the large number of people who commute into and out of Pasadena every day, traffic can be a major concern in this area. With daily gridlock and many people rushing to get to and from their desired locations, traffic accidents on the streets, highways and freeways of Pasadena are not uncommon.
