Festival Weekend Ahead

    Festival Weekend Ahead
    Pasadena Chalk Festival
    "Lola" by Gina Fenandez. The 2010 Pasadena Chalk Festival takes place on Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20.

    Three festivals are unfurling over the weekend in Pasadena, Leimert Park and Irvine, respectively. Details:

    Pasadena Chalk Festival: It's a free walk-around -- careful walk-around, we'll add -- at Paseo Colorado. The sidewalk is the canvas, and dozens of artists are all crouched down creating portraits, landscapes, even 3Dish illusions. This is a bring-your-camera deal. Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20

    Father's Day/Juneteenth Celebration: If you missed the great Barbara Morrison singing at Hollywood & Highland last week, you'll get another chance on Saturday, June 19. R&B, brunch, and more sounds are part of the weekend. There's also a heritage festival nearby, with lots of family activities. June 19 and 20

    The Great American Irish Fair: The Young Dubliners will perform. So will many, many step-dancers. And bag pipes? They'll be providing the stirring soundtrack at the Irvine Meadows Fairgrounds. June 19 and 20
