#BigParadeLA took place this year on May 19 and 20. I participated in most of Saturday's walk - I was half an hour late to Angel's Flight, though that didn't stop me from walking up the neighboring staircase and riding the train back down on my own. Whenever I ride the Flight down, I always wonder what would happen if the cable that ties the up and down cars suddenly snapped - would I make it all the way across Hill St. into the Central Market? Would one of the vendors there accept my "drive-thru" order of food?
I caught up to the Parade at the Chinatown Metro Gold Line Station. About a block north of the station is the south entrance to the Los Angeles State Historic Park, 13 acres of greenbelt that covers a former railyard. There are plans to eventually extend the park to cover a total of 32 acres.
The Big Parade then proceeded over a couple of bridges that span the LA River, and we wound our way to the downtown end of the Portola Trail, which runs through Elysian Park, connecting downtown with Echo Park. We soon left the Trail and Elysian Park in order to walk the Pasadena freeway. To be continued. . .
