Looking for something to do this weekend? Join the Big Parade. The Big Parade is an initiative of a local writer who lives in Mt. Washington. The two-day event is essentially a series of walking loops through Los Angeles that take you through the city. Day One starts on May 31 at Grand Park at 8:30AM and end at 7:30PM at the Music Box Stairs in Silver Lake. Day Two begins at the Music Box Stairs at 8:30AM and finishes at the Griffith Park Observatory. Each day will have four specific loops of lengths between two and seven miles. The full walk is approximately 35 miles. Loops vary by intensity with some including many of the city’s stairways.
Participants are asked to bring their own food and drinks. Lunch breaks include live music. Historians, artists, poets, and musicians also entertain along the way.
To follow along visit the Big Parade site to check out the timetables. The walks are led by a core group but people can join at any time. Participants will also be tweeting throughout the whole journey.
