Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Union Station

Los Angeles-20130430-00390

This year, Union Station will be joining the Cinco de Mayo celebrations by welcoming transit customers on their way to the festivities at Olvera Street on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5.

Metro will create a gateway through Union Station to guide the public to free performances, family activities, attractions and authentic Mexican cuisine at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, located just across the street from Union Station. Union Station will be dressed up with Mexican themed decorations, including streamers, banners and pillar wraps, to create a festive atmosphere. In addition, a strolling Mariachi band will be playing around the station from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

Metro riders can also get a 10% discount when buying gifts at the El Pueblo Visitor Center. Just show your valid TAP card at the cashier.

Union Station can be reached by the Metro Gold, Red and Purple lines, Metrolink and Amtrak, as well as a number of buses. Use Trip Planner for routes and connections.
