Councilmember Tom LaBonge will mark the summer solstice this Wednesday evening with a sunset hike to the top of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park, together with the consular corps and sister cities of the City of Los Angeles. This international affair, now in its 17th year, combines enjoyment of the longest day of the year with an international potluck that celebrates the incredible diversity of the City of Los Angeles.
All are invited to enjoy a beautiful sunset and international cuisine. Please meet at the north end of the Griffith Observatory parking lot near the Charlie Turner Trailhead at 6 p.m. for the gentle 1.5 mile walk up to Mount Hollywood, 1625 feet above sea level.
Arrangements will be made for those who need special transportation, with shuttles running every 20 minutes until 7 p.m.*
Of course the summer solstice, the official first day of summer, is always on June 21. But this Wednesday seems like the perfect evening for a summer hike!
