This week gets off to a slow start, but Thursday night is one of the biggest parties of the year, the First LACBC Firefly Ball. Be safe this weekend!
- Wednesday - Celebrating the award-winning opera one year after it encompassed Union Station and transfixed Los Angeles, this free acoustic concert performance of the opera reunites the original cast of Invisible Cities. Composer and librettist Christopher Cerrone was nominated for a 2014 Pulitzer Prize for his adaptation of Italo Calvino’s beloved novel. Get more details, here.
- Thursday - Named for its timing with the seasonal launch of Operation Firefly, an education and bike light distribution program of LACBC, the Firefly Ball is a light-filled evening of art, music, food and drink. Celebrate with us as we honor community members doing good bike work while raising much needed funds for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition. Get more details, here.
- Friday – It’s the celebration of the first Livable Streets Holiday…Halloween. Have fun out there. On top of everything, there’s Critical Mass. Critical Mass meets at Wilshire/Western at 7 p.m.
- Sunday - Celebrate life (and death) with Metro on a special Day of the Dead themed art tour on Sunday, Nov. 2.
