    Santa Photos & Santa's Mailbox at One Colorado

    to

    One Colorado is providing all-access to Santa this season. It’s a busy time for him, but he’s promised that, as his schedule allows, he’ll pop by special events and host several photos sessions!

    Santa even lets his four-legged friends sit on his lap and share their wishes on Pet Night, Tuesday, December 11, 5:00-9:00pm.

    And if you miss him (or are a little shy), leave your sentiments and wishes in the Santa Mailbox located in the Courtyard. All notes get a reply, so don’t forget to include your return address! Santa’s Mailbox is sponsored by Old Pasadena Management. (Note: Letters must be delivered by 6:00pm on 12/16/18 for a response.)

    Holiday Tour at Castle Green


    1:00pm–5:00pm

    Visitors are invited to enjoy a self-guided tour of the magnificent 120-year-old Castle Green, one of only two times each year that it's open to the public. Guests can visit 25+ private condominiums, the Penthouse, and the iconic Bridge, as well as the ground floor that's decked in holiday finery. 

    Built in 1898, the Castle was designed by architect Frederick I. Roehrig with influence of Moorish, Spanish, and Victorian elements and has turn of the century glamour and charm.  Today, the Castle has become one of the most cherished historic buildings in Pasadena and remains a majestic centerpiece of the city.

    Caterers will be providing delicious holiday bite size treats from stations throughout our ground floor while supplies last.

    Gates open at 1:00 pm – you can arrive at your convenience through 5:00 pm.

    Please note the antique elevator will not be in service during the event. The landmark is handicap-accessible in all rooms of the first floor, including tea service in the ballroom, restrooms, sunroom, grand salon, Moorish and Turkish rooms, lobby, library, and ballroom, as well as from veranda and lawn. A ramp is located via the back driveway.
