The conclusion of the Big Parade will make its way through Griffith Park and up to the Hollywood sign late Sunday afternoon and into the evening.
The two-day event in Los Angeles includes 100 public stairways, transversing more than 40 miles from downtown to the Hollywood sign. It's a free a community event with no sponsors or merchandise, "just a walk with friends and neighbors." The Parade is open to everyone, and folks can drop in and out at will.
Be sure to visit The Big Parade's website for details about the schedule, parking suggestions and more.
To participate in the Griffith Park portion of the walk, here's a look at the schedule:
4:30 p.m. - Los Feliz Heights to Griﬃth Observatory, 2.4m,
Meet; Coﬀee Bean & Tea Leaf, 2081 Hillhurst Ave at Ambrose
•Town and country; Frank Lloyd Wright; Hiking to the famous Griﬃth Park Observatory (return via Observatory Shuttle.)
6 p.m. - Griﬃth Observatory to Hollywood Sign, about 6 miles out-and-back.
Along a fairly rugged hiking trail, so wear sturdy shoes and bring a ﬂashlight if we end up descending after sunset. Guided by Mike Ebert, author of Griﬃth Park: A Centennial History.
Please note that because of the eclipse, the observatory is likely to be very crowded. If you are planning to drive, consider taking the observatory shuttle. We are gong to meet at the north end of the observatory parking lot, just where the hiking trail begins (see this picture: http://cl.ly/GgjV.)
8 p.m., FINISH at the Hollywood Sign, just in time for sunset.
