Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Light Festival 2007!
Even though it's an annual event that's been held for a dozen years now, this was the first time that we've checked out the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's Light Festival. And we're glad we did. The light festival consists of about a mile or so worth of colored Christmas light displays lining Crystal Springs Drive in Griffith Park. The DWP's take on the traditional Christmas light display is hilariously corny and kitschy, overall making for one of those "only in LA" type experiences that we love.
From what I've heard, this year is the first time there have been walk-only nights - usually cars and pedestrians share the display. We're especially glad that we were able to make it to one of the walk-only nights - I doubt we would've gone otherwise.
