Flapping in the wind or lying flat against the chainlink fence, messages of hopes and dreams are decorating the vacant lot at Fremont Avenue and Mission Street.
Members of the community penned wishes for themselves and South Pasadena on strips of cloth, as part of the city's 125th anniversary. South Pas celebrates its quasquicentennial this year. Titled, "One to Grow On,'' the interactive art installation was designed by Marie Switzer Miller.
Wishes include: "free ice cream,'' "health'', "world peace'' and a promise to be "5% kinder to myself.'' There are also several religious messages as well as hopes for bringing back the Rialto Theatre to its full glory.
