GuerilLA Celebrates New Years Eve... in June

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Crosswalk Countdown - GuerilLA from Kelly Herrington on Vimeo.

A crosswalk at Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade starts to count down. Once it hits 10, a group of enthusiastic party-goers begin to count down with it out loud (think New Years Even at Times Square). The clock hits zero, the blinking hand changes to solid and everyone begins to scream in joy. "Happy New Years!"

This is the latest "mission" from LA's version of Improv Everywhere -- GuerilLA-- and no joke, an "agent" couple got engaged during the wackiness.
