Discover LA by Metro:
Get Ready, Get Set – Roll, Run, Walk, Stroll with CicLAvia

Imagine miles of Central Los Angeles streets without cars! No, it’s not some sci-fi horror movie like “Son of Carmageddon,” it’s CicLAvia, and it’s for real.

On Sunday, October 9, 2011, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., more than 10 miles of LA streets will be taken over by thousands of people on bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, strollers, tricycles, wheelchairs, and even running and walking shoes.

The route is accessible by Metro Rail. So hop on a train and join us.

Discover LA by Metro:
Summer in LA means the parks and plazas near Metro Rail stations are alive with the sound of music, the rhythm of dance, and the applause of the crowds. It’s free concert time!

All across Los Angeles County you can see FREE music, dance, and theater performances adjacent to Metro Rail stations. We attended performances at four venues: Grand Performances at California Plaza and Levitt Pavilion at MacArthur Park, both off the Red/Purple Line; Levitt Pavilion at Memorial Park, Pasadena, off the Gold Line; and Summer and Music – Downtown Long Beach, off the Blue Line.

These are just a sampling of what’s available for free. We’ve included links to other free (and fee) concerts.

Discover LA by Metro:
A Traveling Circus where the Audience and Performers Travel – on the Metro Blue Line!

The Metro becomes a circus train, bringing excitement to stations from 103rd Street in Los Angeles to 1st Street in Long Beach.

The box office opens at 10:30 a.m. at the Watts Towers Art Center, a few blocks from the Blue Line 103rd Street Station. The fun-filled show starts at 11 a.m. at the Towers and continues at venues at or near the Del Amo, 5th Street, and 1st Street Stations, ending back at Watts Towers about 2 ½ hours later.
