Monte Cedro & Christmas Tree Lane

Altadena Heritage holds two events each year for the residents of  Monte Cedro.

On November 30 we held a well-attended, engaging presentation at the senior living community.

Mary Landau, Altadena Heritage member and historian for the Christmas Tree Lane Association, gave a fascinating talk on the history of Altadena’s Christmas Tree Lane, from its days hosting uphill car races in the early 1900’s to current celebrations of lighting the Deodar trees each Christmas.  

Mary showed many wonderful photos from the collections of the Altadena Historical Society and Altadena and Pasadena Libraries.

The Monte Cedro residents (and all of you) are encouraged to join Mary at this year’s lighting ceremony which will be held on December 10th at 6pm.

If you are interested in learning more about the history of the Lane, the Altadena Library provides a number of videos in conjunction with the Altadena Historical Society and Christmas Tree Lane Association.  Mary features in several of them!
