The Great Los Angeles Walk

Get out of your car, and on your feet!  Every Saturday before Thanksgiving, Angelenos meet up on the street, and WALK ACROSS LOS ANGELES. But nobody walks in LA, right? Wrong!

This year, meet other walkers on the front steps of downtown’s Walt Disney Concert Hall (at 1st and Grand). There will be a speaker or two to kick things off, at around 8:45, so get there early. The Walk leaves PROMPTLY at 9.  They're expecting over 250 hikers this year!

From the Walt Disney Concert Hall, you'll walk west on 1st, which turns into Beverly Blvd. And then north on Virgil, west on Melrose Avenue, to the end -- when you'll then make a left on to Santa Monica Boulevard, which you'll take to the ocean.


Start point: Walt Disney Concert Hall
111 South Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90012
(but you can join up anywhere along the route)

Crafty People Craft Fair

Summer was the season of festivals; winter is the season of craft fairs.  Since LA is a tough town for shopping (IMO - the driving and parking and lack of good shopping districts make it a pain), craft fairs are the saving grace for your holiday gift buying.

Bring your family, enjoy the live entertainment, food and all the amazing hand crafted items by local artists


8 am - 4 pm

Bootie LA
