Pasadena Waldorf School (PWS) held its annual western-themed Hoe Down and cakewalk on September 22nd to welcome new and returning families to the beginning of the academic year. In addition to students and parents, many faculty and staff members were also there to enjoy the music, dancing and food provided for the event.

The cakewalk is one of the most beloved aspects of the Hoe Down, with over a dozen homemade cakes and pies as prizes, including a red velvet cake with a marzipan fairy donated by the Hood family, attending for their first year at the school.

The three hour event was organized by the school’s parent council and included freshly prepared lemonade from lemons donated by many of the families, as well as a buffet of grilled hamburgers, veggie burgers, fries and coleslaw with a variety of sliced cakes and pies for desert.

Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, is one of over 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide with over 90 years of experience offering an inspired education. Pasadena Waldorf High School, which opened this year, joins 40 other Waldorf high schools now operating in North America.
