The awesome and free "Night on Broadway" block-party festival that took over the streets of downtown L.A. this past January is making a comeback. It'll return to the historic Broadway Corridor on January 31, 2016.

At this past event, streets were blocked off and folks got to explore historic theaters like Million Dollar, Los Angeles, Palace, Tower, Orpheum and the Theatre at Ace Hotel, some of which are normally closed off to the public. There were musical concerts, Cirque du Soleil-like dance performances, art installations, food trucks and film screenings. It was a celebration of the 7th anniversary of when L.A. Councilmember José Huizar, who represents the district, launched his plan to revitalize the historic Broadway Corridor.

Downtown News reports that 35,000 people attended this event, and that because it was so well received, Huizar is bringing it back.

More information about the "Night on Broadway" will be released closer to the event date.
