Food, music, fireworks: the best things about any Fourth of July block party! If you’re looking for a family-friendly place to enjoy all of those things for free, Grand Park’s Fourth of July Block Party is it. Doors open at 3 p.m.; the fireworks show is set for 9 p.m.
And the easiest way to get to the block party? With Metro! Pro-tip: Avoid long lines at the TVMs after the event by loading your TAP card with cash fare/day pass before starting your trip.
Take the Red/Purple Line to Civic Center/Grand Park Station and use the 1st Street exit. Temple Street exit will only be open for ADA/elevator access. If you don’t mind a short walk, you can also hop off at the Gold Line Little Tokyo/Arts District Station and walk towards City Hall.
Speaking of the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station…if you’re hoping to grab some lunch or a drink before the party at Grand Park, why not swing by Angel City Brewery’s ‘Merica Fest? If you show your valid TAP card, you’ll receive a special freebie! The offer is valid from noon to 3 p.m. (Second pro-tip: since you have to vacate Grand Park by 9:30 p.m. feel free to swing back to Angel City Brewery to continue your shenanigans. Metro will be running late-night rail service…)
