The disability pride parade, festival and fair will take place at the East L.A. Civic Center located at 4801 East Third Street, Los Angeles, CA 90022 (cross street is Mednik Avenue).
Event registration opens at 8 A.M., which includes your meal ticket, goody bag and event t-shirt; followed by the opening ceremonies promptly at 9 A.M.
Our parade/march will begin promptly at 9 A.M. and is approximately 1 mile in distance (half a mile going and half a mile returning to the civic center — visual maps attached). We will march out of the Civic Center through Civic Center Way toward Mednik Avenue, go North on Mednik Avenue toward Cesar Chavez Avenue and make a u-turn right before Cesar Chavez Avenue and return south on Mednik to return to the Civic Center.)
