CicLAvia celebrates it’s 6th year today and will run from Downtown to Venice Beach by way of Venice Boulevard. This is the FIRST time that it has made it’s way all the way to Venice.
This means NO CARS kids….as most people who know me know….I am NOT a car person….I like to put on my rollerlades and go….so I am excited about this event. ‘
As in previous years, shop owners and food trucks will be open and there will be all kinds of vendors along the route…so take some time to walk or bike, rollerblade or skip down Venice Boulevard…bring the kids the dogs and enjoy!
Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States.
CicLAvia is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting public health, active green transportation, public space, economic development, and community building through car-free public events.

In Santa Monica….
Take some theater in and see Cinderella at the Santa Monica Playhouse.
“An enchanting Cinderella!” (LA TIMES). “Magical!” (DRAMA-LOGUE). The hilarious Rudie-DeCarlo musical is back for two weeks only, offering romantics of all ages the chance to try on the glass slipper and help Cinderella find her happily-ever-after. “Truly imaginative and entertaining.” Birthday and tea parties, too!
