Tucked beside the San Gabriel Mountains and San Rafael Hills, Pasadena borders the Raymond Fault Line. This fault line connects to the San Andreas Fault, which runs 810 miles vertically through California. The San Andreas Fault is between the Pacific tectonic plate and the North American Plate. The Raymond fault holds much potential of seismic activity in the Los Angeles basin. The California Channel Islands are just off the coast and are a product of the Raymond Fault. Disruption at the Raymond Fault caused the 1988 Pasadena Earthquake, with a measurement of 5.0 on the rector scale.
Along with the rest of Los Angeles and Southern California, Pasadena has grown over the last twenty-five years or so at a fairly rapid pace. This rapid growth did involve a substantial use of portable storage containers in Pasadena as real estate developers and construction companies required the portable storage units.
Pasadena is most well known for holding the annual Rose Bowl and Rose Bowl Parade. The Rose Bowl Parade was created to celebrate Pasadena’s blooming flowers and ripening fruit in the middle of the winter. The floats in the Rose Bowl Parade are completely covered in fresh flowers and veggitation. Rarely are shipping containers used in the actual parade, but they are definitely involved in the decorating phases. The game is usually held on New Years Day. The Rose Bowl is the oldest traditional college football bowl. The football game was added to the Rose Bowl parade at the start of the 20th century in order to increase revenue to pay for the parade. The game was officially deemed the Rose Bowl in 1923.
The first game in 1910 was a match of Michigan against Stanford, Michigan won 49-0. The game is usually between a college team from the West and the East. In 1998 the Bowl Championship Series was created to choose which teams compete in the Rose Bowl and other bowls, such as the Orange Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. USC has competed in the Rose Bowl most frequently, competing 33 times and winning 24 of those games. Following USC is Michigan playing in 20 games, Washington in 14, and Ohio State in 14. Last Year Texas Christian University won against the Wisconsin Badgers, and in 2010 Ohio State beat Oregon 26-17.
