Beware!! SCAM at parking around convention center!! There was a uniformed "parking attendant" collecting $9 for "Event Parking" (a sign was added to the regular sign, that says you pay on your way out, which is what we did yesterday). The ticket didn't let us leave without paying more! The so-called attendant was long gone. I called the Pasadena police so that they would monitor this SCAM and they were not concerned about visitors in their community being robbed!!! So Beware!!

We attended IMATS today at the Pasadena Convention Center. We parked at Paseo Coronado which is very close. The was a uniformed person collecting $9.00 in cash for Event Parking. We had been there yesterday and took a ticket and paid afterwards, therefore I questioned this action. There was a Sign "Event Parking" added to the sign that was there. We paid. The tickets didn't let us out when we left, we had to pay the machine addition funds to exit. Of course, the perpetrator was gone and there was no number to call. WE WERE SCAMMED!!! I called the Pasadena Police to let them know that they should monitor this SCAM in their city. They told me that it was a private parking structure and was not their concern!! I thought stealing from people was a crime. My error. PEOPLE VISITING PASADENA: BEWARE!!!

Decent but there is nothing distinquishing it from other convention centers. It was easy to navigate and the people working there were helpful.

love the convention center in pasadena,they have amazing programs and plays every year,we used to live in pasadena and we used to walk in the same day/evening before the play and get discounted tickets for $10 for the same night play if not full or sold out already,don't know if they still have this deal or not but worth trying if you live in pasadena or visit pasadena,is right behind paseo shopping center,check the mall and then go for the play;)
