Take advantage of the long weekend and Go Metro! There’s lots of great all-weekend events to keep you occupied. Ride the Gold Line to Little Tokyo and enjoy live jazz at the Los Angeles Jazz Collective Memorial Weekend Festival. The Green Line gets a little love this weekend thanks to Fiesta Hermosa, and event celebrating everything Hermosa Beach – with free shuttles to the event from an lot near the Redondo Beach Green Line Station. The The 25th Annual Jazz and Reggae Festival takes place on Sunday and Monday at UCLA and should satiate anyone’s need for culture, music and community.
It’s probably a good weekend to remind readers to take advantage of Metro’s Destination Discounts – they’re a great way to save a little cash by going Metro to participating destinations.
All events are subject to change or may be be sold out, please check with the venue before making plans. To plan your trip and to check all other transit options, please consult Google Transit or the Metro Trip Planner.
