When the Eastside Extension of Metro's Gold Line opens this Sunday, it will be a lot more than just free rides. Four events are planned at or near stations along the line, featuring food and music.

Most notably, the Mariachi Plaza Station will be where riders can visit the First Annual Boyle Heights Block Party and Mariachi Festival. At the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, Metro says there will be a live karaoke stage and "delicious cuisine from dozens of nearby restaurants." At the East L.A. Civic Center Station, a farmers market and live Chicano rock music can be found.

Full details of the day's events are below.
