Weekend diary


Dance performance at Mi Alma.

They don't make community calendars to fit the amount of organized -- and disorganized -- activity that filled the streets of Echo Park (and beyond) this past weekend, much of it overlapping the city at large. Some of the EPish events were the Public Display of Art artwalk, which spawned dozens of mini-happenings; Big Sunday projects; and an Old Time Social held by HM 157 in Elysian Valley. There was too much to do! And too much to list.

While Sunday's open house at JPL suctioned some of EP's residents out of the area, Big Sunday exerted its own gravity, giving them reasons to stay here "in town," as it were. Among these was a community garden-construction and clean-up at El Centro Del Pueblo, sponsored by Eric Garcetti's office along with Gil Cedillo's Office, Kevin de Leon's Office and Kaiser Permanente. This effort was planned for Saturday and Sunday.
