Golden Dragon Parade & Festival, Downtown LA

Thanks to John C. for suggesting this.  The parade is on Saturday, the 16th.   I will be taking the Metrolink from Irvine, at 9:00AM.  You can jump on the train, along the way, or meet up at Union Station (train arrives at 10:30AM, so we can meet about 10:45).   From Union Station, we will walk north to Cesar Chavez, then west to Broadway or Hill.  You can also meet us along the parade/festival route.  We will find shooting positions on Broadway, Bernard, or Hill, so that the parade is coming toward us.  I will send my cell # the night before.

The festival continues on Sunday, but the parade is only on Saturday.

Trains leave Union Station for Orange County at 2:40 and 4:40PM.

    It was difficult keeping up with the group since there were thousands of people there and I got separated very effectively. Never saw the group again after just a few minutes. Still a good venue.

    Hi everyone, I had RSVP'd as Maybe but I ended up going... though sadly I missed most everyone because I was late. I got pulled over by a cop on the way. Fortunately he it was just due to expired registration... I just hadn't put my sticker on so he let me go after looking it up. It ate up enough time though that I got stuck in parking line traffic once I actually got downtown, and then I ended up walking the completely wrong direction to meet up with you guys at Pho 97!

    Anyway, looking forward to seeing all the pics!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
