The city of Pasadena is home to 139,000 residents, but next week about a quarter of a million tourists are expected to descend on the Crown City. 

The two major draws include the first of two big football games being played at the Rose Bowl and, of course, the famous Rose Parade.

If you're entertaining some of those tourists and looking for things to do before kickoff or watching the floats, we've got some ideas. KPCC's social media producer Kristen Lepore has a list of all the great things to do in Pasadena, you'll find it at KPCC.org.
