The Sixth Street Viaduct loves celebrating with the community! 
Fall is here, and with it comes a handful of reasons to celebrate. This October, the Sixth Street Viaduct participated in a number of celebrations with Angelenos. On October 9th, for the first time, we were part of CicLAvia’s Heart of LA route. For this event, the City of Los Angeles closed some of its busiest streets to car traffic, allowing people to walk, skate and bike. This was a great opportunity for family and friends to explore and walk freely along the Sixth Street Viaduct.

We also participated in “Lighting the Night” with other landmarks around the city, including Union Station, City Hall and LAX. This annual celebration is used to honor fallen firefighters by turning the lights red throughout the city. Along with “Lighting the Night,” the City of Los Angeles continues to acknowledge its rich culture by observing Filipino American History Month. Throughout the month we have turned our lights yellow, white, red and blue in commemoration of the first recorded presence of Filipinos in the United States on October 18, 1587.

We look forward to continuing to celebrate our city’s diverse culture and the many holidays we have ahead of us!
