From 10am to 3pm on Sunday, October 9th 2011, CicLAvia will create a free fun family festival on ten miles of Los Angeles streets. By removing cars, the streets are transformed into a temporary park - a wondrous, safe, family-friendly place. CicLAvia welcomes folks of all ages, interests, and every kind of non-automotive transit imaginable - from sneakers to skate to bikes to wheelchairs. Dogs, on leash, are also welcome. CicLAvia is magical. All kinds of Angelenos come together and they're all smiling!
Support L.A.'s biggest block party with its Kickstarter Campaign! CicLAvia will be raising funds online until September 14th!
CicLAvia got its start in 2010, originally extending from East Hollywood to MacArthur Park to Downtown to Boyle Heights. For October 2011, the route is expanding to the Fashion District and Chinatown. Also new for October, CicLAvia is launching CicLAvia Walks, with fun activities to help participants discover Los Angeles in new ways. There will be more activities and performances throughout the route, and walking tours highlighting architecture, art, and all kinds of yummy food along the route.
CicLAvia is free and open to all. No reservations are required. Start anywhere along the route, and walk/bike/skate as much or as little as you like. Bring money to buy lunch and snacks along the way. CicLAvia is very beginner-friendly and kid-friendly, and definitely not a race.
