There are plenty of free open lots and street parking in South Pasadena by our will call tables and among the Taste route, so please make use of them, but follow posted parking signs. We can’t be responsible for ticketed or towed cars. If you start at Canoe House, there is a free open lot on the corner of Hope/Mound.
