A Grand Opening

So you thought summer in Los Angeles couldn’t get any better…

This Saturday, July 28th, Los Angeles County alongside the City of Los Angeles come together in a joint effort to welcome the community to the newly revitalized Grand Park in Downtown LA! The 12-acre park will stretch from Spring Street adjacent to City Hall to Grand Avenue at the Music Center. Developers have transformed this 4 block community park into an outdoor heaven, including in the ground plans the restored Arthur Will Memorial Fountain plaza, a performance lawn, community terrace and an event lawn.

However, this two-year project comes to a halt this weekend with the park’s inaugural opening ceremonies, first with the National Dance Day Celebration on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and continuing on Sunday with Sunday Music at the Park program from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The National Dance Day Celebration is sponsored by the Dizzy Feet Foundation and will include appearances by “So You Think You Can Dance’s,” Nigel Lythgoe along with a special performance from IRIS by Cirque de Suleil. The celebration will continue on Sunday with unique musical performances brought to you by The Music Center.

Come join The Squirrel Co. in welcoming the newest addition to our downtown community this weekend at Grand Park! For more information on the park and its inaugural weekend celebrations, visit www.grandpark.lacounty.gov.
