Check the map for the parade route and street closures associated w.... The street closures will be in effect from 5:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.

If you've still have then energy after the festivities, it's a free day on Monday at the LA County Art Museum for everyone in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr's. Birthday.
