Bicyclists, who have been prohibited from visiting the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's Holiday Light Festival (no not that Festival of Lights - that already ended the other week...) in Griffith Park, will converge at the Kool-Aid Fountain (a.k.a. the William Mulholland Memorial Fountain) on the corner of Los Feliz Blvd. and Riverside Drive at 7:30 p.m. tonight to ride en masse to the Festival in solidarity to show that bikerzz can has Light Festival.
Aside from a token preview a few weeks ago, bikes, along with buses and RVs, have been banned from the Festival. But obviously unlike buses and RVs, bicycles do not pose a threat to the Festival's height clearance, much less pollute the air, so there must be some other conspiracy at play here.
The organizers encourage participants to dress up illuminated (anyone know where to find some glowsticks?) in order to become the light festival.
These folks are down. So are these folks.
The Militant may or not be there of course, but damnit, he probably will.
Mr. Mulholland himself once said, upon the opening of the great Aqueduct, "There it is, take it!"
And damnit, we probably will.
