You have 2 options for this event:
1. Meet at 6 PM for optional potluck picnic beforehand at Linda Vista Road and Figueroa St. Meet in the grassy area. Bring something to share. Leader won't be there, so you'll have to find each other. Write in the comments section if you're going to the picnic beforehand--this will help encourage others in joining.
2. Meet at same corner at 7:45 PM to go on a short walk to viewing spot. We'll wait until 8 PM. This is a great location to look down at the Rose Bowl fireworks. We'll meet at the corner (in grassy area) of Linda Vista Road and Figueroa St (if you are using mapquest enter 3300 Figueroa St) in Glendale. Thomas Guide 565 C1. Will have Meetup sign. If you want to have a picnic in the grassy area before the meeting, write in the comments below. We will wait until 8 PM. Don't come later than 8 PM because it will be hard to find us amongst the hundreds up there. The group will be scattered all over the hills by then. We should return around 9:45 PM. If you want to return earlier, it's not difficult to find your way back. We will mostly walk on residential streets. Then we will hike up a short trail. BRING SHOES WITH GOOD TRACTION OR HIKING BOOTS. Part of the trail is very slippery if you don't have good shoes--steep incline. We'll break into 2 groups. One group who wants to do the slippery trail (closer to fireworks) and the other who won't do the slippery trail.
At the spot we are going to overlook the Rose Bowl and see the fireworks from there! Walk/hike is less than 1 mile round trip. We will be walking/ hiking up hill. Beginners who are in decent/good shape should be able to do this. Fireworks start at 9:05 PM.It ends at 9:30 PM. Bring water or liquids. Recommend bringing beach towels/ lounge chairs to sit on-- it is dirt. Otherwise, you'll have to stand the whole time. Since there is a sign warning you of fire danger, DO NOT BRING CIGARETTES, FIREWORKS, LIGHTERS, ETC. Also, NO alcohol. Many cops nearby! OPTIONAL Potluck. Ok, if you bring flashlight.
Watch where you sit. There are ants that bite. May want to bring bug/ant spray. Wear long pants and long socks.
