The CicLAvia on October 5 will be not only the tenth open-streets event of its kind in Los Angeles (remember the first one?), it will also be the first to go beyond the technical borders of the city of Los Angeles, into East LA. The route—which will stretch from Echo Park to East LA and, as always, be closed to cars and open to people—will include six "hubs" along the way, offering event info, activities, food, and other resources for participants.
Many of the hubs will be in areas that are new to the car-free event: Echo Park (food trucks, DJs), Broadway's theater district (climbing wall, photo booth, library trucks, theater), Chinatown (live music), Mariachi Plaza (farmers' market, music, Zumba, photobooth), Cinco Puntos on the east end of Boyle Heights (kick-off with the mayor), and one at the East LA Civic Center (yoga, obstacle course, Kids Zone, a Mobile Mural Lab). The event runs from 9 am to 4 pm; the map above and here shows crossing points for cars, if you're someone who drives during CicLAvia, as well as hub locations.
