It’s time to get patriotic and enjoy some barbeque, fireworks, and whole lot of red, white, and blue. The Fourth of July is right around the corner and Metro provides Angelenos an easy way to get to celebrations of the nation’s 237th birthday.
Take the Metro Red or Purple Line to Civic Center/Grand Park Station to join in on the 4th of July Block Party at Grand Park. Starting at 3 p.m., you can feast on All-American food from burger and ice cream food trucks and enjoy live music for free. Need some shades to view the fireworks? Go Metro and receive a free pair of sunglasses by showing your TAP card at the information booth.
Iconic singer and songwriter Josh Groban joins the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular at the Hollywood Bowl for a three-day celebration. This festivity offers a marvelous outdoor setting for good old-fashioned music and spectacular fireworks. Take the Metro Red Line to Hollywood/Highland and you can transfer to the Bowl Shuttle free with a valid Metro TAP card.
Also by this weekend, Metro’s Expo and Gold Lines will be improved to run every 10 minutes after 7 p.m. To plan your route for Fourth of July festivities, use the Metro Trip Planner.
