The Big Parade 2012: 10 Days Away - Are You Ready?

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, May 22, 2011.  The public staircase leading to the former Red Car Trolley Viaduct above former Currie's Ice Cream Parlor is a likely feature of Day 2.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

May 19 & 20, 2012: The Big Parade is the FREE, 2-day, 100+ public staircase hike from Downtown to the Hollywood Sign. We've been big supporters of the Big Parade since their first outing in 2009.  The historic landmark Red Car Viaduct Footings are also a feature of Day 2. 

It is a pretty amazing sight to see 100 people working their way on foot through our historic public staircases.  Join The Big Parade for a few staircases, miles or 3 days (there's a Mt Washington 10-mile warm-up hike on Friday, May 18). 

Routes, timetables, features, advice and photos are all available: The Big Parade
