This is a NO HOST Event. Last year we went to the beach and the traffic and parking was horrible! So... the beach is out... This location sounds good... live music, easy transportation via the Metro Red Line and same basic rules... No booze, cooking... but you can probably get away with some booze if you are very discrete and transfer your wine to a non descript container or Thermos...
Experience the 4th in a whole new way! Pack your family and friends, puppies and picnics and head to Grand Park to see Downtown LA light up in a spectacle not to be missed!
All day picnicking, splashing, and grubbing. If it is a hot day, you might want to bring some clothing that you don't mind getting wet to splash around it... Music begins at 3pm.
NOTE: Hill Street will be closed for food trucks
