Go Metro Weekends, Dec 19 – 21


If you enjoy singing Christmas carols like I do, belt out your favorite holiday tunes this Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Annual Holiday Sing-Along outside The Music Center Plaza downtown. And don’t worry, there will be a live accompaniment and lyric sheets provided for those who are a little rusty. Free tickets will be given around 6 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early! (Take Metro Red or Purple Line to Civic Center/Grand Park Station and head northeast on Hill St. then turn left on Grand Avenue.)

The Figat7th Holiday Sessions will come to an end this Friday, so don’t miss the live concert featuring the funky-electric, cumbia sounds of Subsuelo along with a special performance by Flamenco dancer La Tigresa. Festivities will begin on the TASTE Level at 4 p.m. and all concerts are free! (Take Metro Red, Purple, Expo or Blue Line to 7th Street/Metro Center.)


Test your navigation skills and partake in the Metro Holiday Hunt for a chance to win awesome prizes from the Metro store, restaurant gift cards and other exclusive deals from ours Destination Discount partners. First, follow @metrolosangeles on Twitter. On Saturday and Sunday, the Metro Fairy will tweet clues to her location. Once the holiday fairy is found, show your TAP card and say the secret code word to take a photo with her. Then post the photo and tag @metrolosangeles and #TAPandSave to claim your prize.


And if you’re in downtown L.A. this weekend, stop by Union Station to hear another free performance by the All-American Boys Choir . America’s most beloved boys choir will sing popular Christmas carols from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and they’ll need your help! (Metro Gold, Red, Purple, Silver Line to Union Station)

  1. And while the Dickens Christmas Festival was last weekend, the International Printing Museum IS open this weekend, and if you take Metro to Alpine Village, in Torrance, we’re within walking distance. Just walk East on Torrance Blvd, past the Harbor Freeway, the antique shop, and the Mission Ebenezer Church, and we’ll be on your left, across the street from the side of K-Mart. Admission is up to $10 these days, but it still includes a guided tour, demonstrations, and souvenirs.
