For the ninth year in a row, the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena participated in the city’s annual Latino Heritage Parade. Some 30 Club kids marched in the parade on October 24, which began at Los Robles Avenue and Howard Street and wended its way toward La Pintoresca Park where cultural activities, art exhibits, entertainment, food, and community booths awaited attendees. This parade was led by grand marshal Josefina Lopez, writer, director and activist perhaps best known as the author of the play (and co-author of the screenplay) Real Women Have Curves, and also honored community activist, author, historian and long-time resident Roberta Martinez.
