Yes, you finally get to celebrate the champions—lawfully!
It all started with the Lakers winning the NBA, then that was followed with the Dodgers taking home the trophy at the World Series for the first time in 32 years! At the time, Angelenos could hardly contain their excitement. There were fireworks, champagne bottles were popped, impromptu street parties took place and there was lots, and lots of honking. However, the whole city has been dying to throw a more formal parade to take savor this historic moment in a pandemic appropriate way. And this drive-thru festival is the answer.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will be hosting an inaugural drive-thru Holiday Festival to celebrate the 2020 World Championship win (and the holiday season, of course). From November 27 through December 24, fans will be able to drive into a “snowy” Lot 10 at Chavez Ravine to revel in elaborate light shows, interactive displays, LED videos, and lighting effects all honoring the Dodgers World Championship, but safely. Currently, the event will happen every night starting at 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Although, this may be subject to change due to newly-implemented countywide curfews.
As always, guests will be required to wear a mask whenever car windows are rolled down. There’ll be no food available for purchase so you can start planning your in-car buffet to bring along, just as long as it doesn’t involve any alcohol. Ticketholders are asked to arrive 30 minutes before the designated timeslot and have a radio switched on to tune into the broadcast action.
Guests must wear a face covering if their windows are rolled down and are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes in advance of their designated time slot and will not be allowed to exit their vehicles during the drive-thru. That means, there’ll be no restrooms available either.
At the event, donations of new or gently-used baseball or softball equipment that will benefit Dodgers RBI, toys that will benefit RaiseAChild, and pairs of socks that will benefit LA Family Housing will be accepted in a contactless manner. More information will be given on arrival.
The tickets cost $55 per vehicle and are available here.
