A Big Success: One More Day to Parade on L.A.'s Staircases

Before you read more...
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Nearly 75 people yesterday joined Dan Koeppel and friends on the first of two days in The Big Parade, a 40-mile walk from downtown to the Hollywood Sign up and down more one hundred neighborhood stair cases. They begin the last leg of their journey this morning after camping in a Silver Lake pocket park next to the Music Box Stairs.

If you've got an itching to join, we recommend you do--there's a lot of fun to be had. Today's trip will take explorers 21.5 miles and over 64 staircases. And remember this: to join them doesn't mean you have to do the whole thing. Anyone can come and go as they please, where they please and it's pretty easy to do so. Just take a look at today's time table, the map and read the instructions and you'll be set for Los Angeles' quintessential urban hike. Enjoy!
