Red Car Neighborhood: The Big Parade 2011

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, May 22, 2011. Approximately 75 people in The Big Parade hiked up and over the Loma Vista Public Staircase and gathered in front of the Holyland Exhibition at the corner of Allesandro Way & Lake View Ave.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Hikers learned about the history of the 2 Freeway (behind the trees, above left), the politics behind the 2 Freeway Terminus Redesign and the Holyland Exhibition (good neighbors since 1924).

This week, we're looking at The Big Parade's trek through the Corralitas Red Car Neighborhood.
