A lot of people haven’t checked out or even heard of the Venice Electric Light Parade near the Santa Monica Pier. It’s a really cool event where people decorate their bikes with awesome lights and ride down the Venice plaza. It’s mind blowing to see everyone’s bikes glowing in the dark!
But guess what? You can actually join in and ride with everyone too! All you need is your transportation device (like a bike – that’s our favorite), and a helmet to keep you safe.
It is free if you bring or borrow a bike that you are able to bring.
But if you don’t have a bike, don’t worry! You are able to rent a bike. You can even buy some cool lights to decorate your tool of transportation with.
The parade happens every Sunday one hour before sunset (beware that sunset time changes everyday) at Windward Plaza on the Boardwalk 1501 Ocean Front Walk. You don’t need to sign up or anything, just show up and ride along!
If you want more information, check out their website, Instagram, or Facebook page. Have fun!
