I headed over to Olvera Street today to photograph the annual Blessing of the Animals. There were a lot of little animals in a lot of little costumes. The procession went on for over an hour.

The art community downtown put on a street festival today. I headed down there to check it out and take some photos. The festival web site said they were expecting 30,000 people I don’t think they came even close to that, but it was still a good time.
Chinatown in Downtown Los Angeles put on a harvest moon festival with contortionists, martial artists, acrobats, moon cakes and even some telescopes to take a closer look at the moon. I took my camera.
Redondo Beach was hosting a chalk art festival, so I headed down there with my camera to take some pictures of the sidewalk art. It was mostly kids, so the art was mostly lousy, but there were a few nice pieces and a band and plenty of beach sunshine.
