It was conceived as a way to force Angelenos to interact with each other and think about our streets as a public, shared space, and it's become so wildly popular that it's starting to become a victim of it's own success, but despite the crowds, it was a wonderful way to cruise downtown. This event always leaves me with a huge smile on my face.
|Double Dutch in the street.|
|Pinata district. Yes, this is a real thing.|
|Fairy wings, and a sweet Xtracycle.|
|Steel drums. Gave the intersection a Caribbean feel.|
|Car-Free streets! Yay!|
|4th St. Bridge, downtown, closed to car traffic.|
The next event is in October, and I wish it was sooner. I always have such a good time!
