WHAT:
Grand Park’s April and May daytime programming duo of local entertainment and food truck cuisine power up Thursday lunches in Downtown L.A. this spring. Empowering the talents of local youth, Grand Park’s weekly Lunch À La Park Spring Concerts will feature artists from L.A.’s top conservatories and performing arts training programs in instrumental, vocal and dance performances. The free Lunch À La Park Spring Concerts will take place on Grand Park’s Performance Lawn, near Hill Street, where Angelenos can enjoy sunshine, music and lunch on Grand Park’s trademark pink tables and chairs. Park furniture is available on a first come, first-served basis. With more than 50,000 lunches sold in the park last year, Grand Park continues its tradition of lunchtime in the park by providing park visitors a wide variety of food truck cuisine three days per week. Food trucks are parked in Grand Park’s Olive Court (between Grand Avenue and Hill Street) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. Check grandparkla.org for the food truck schedule.
