Since Los Angeles is always full of things to do, Travelin’ Local is starting a new column every Friday entitled “Free Friday.” And you guessed right, the activities listed will be free!

Each week, I’ll look for the many free activities always going on in and around Los Angeles, and then we will be featuring them in a list. Because LA is so large and spread out, you might not be able to do all the things on the list; but one never knows. And after all, picking and choosing what to do is half the fun.

If you have an event you’d like featured, just use the Contact Page.

So in that vein, here are a few free upcoming events for you to enjoy:

  • East Hollywood ArtCycle: East Hollywood Merges Creativity and Cycling in Celebration of their Neighborhood’s Emerging Arts Scene. The Second Annual ArtCycle event features great art, bike rides, gallery shows, food and live music. It takes place on March 13th, at Santa Monica Blvd & Madison, 2-10pm.
  • Celebrate Aztec New Year at Xokolatl Café: With an open-air market featuring hand-made crafts and child’s activities, plus discussions featuring Ley of Semillas, Las Ramonas, and Lilia Ramirez, and Semillas muralist and formerly of First Street Studios, this event looks great.
