A joyous moment for the city.
After a rough year of fires and a pandemic, Angelenos have been given a temporary antidote to it all and a major cause for celebration. This isn’t the first win this month either, the Lakers won the NBA Championships and now the Boys in Blue have brought home the World Series trophy for the first time in 32 years. As expected the excitement took over and the skies were filled with illegal fireworks, unlawful street gatherings and honking became the celebratory roar for the night. [Featured Image: @micshots]
So, in case you missed it, here’s what went in L.A. last night.
1. An Entire House Was Graffitied And Unveiled
Local artist Hector “Tetris” Arias (and serious sports enthusiast) has painted yet another house in honor of a major sporting team. Admittedly this was preempted but nonetheless, it’s a beautiful display of pride along with his now-famous Lakers House. The Dodger House is located on Rowan Avenue and 3rd Street if you’d like to visit it. Don’t forget to tag the artist.
2. SoFi Stadium Took Their Lighting Displays To New Levels
Along with all the usual landmarks lighting up blue, the SoFi Stadium also added a blue glow to the city but with a fancy message over the top of the venue.

Along with twinkling city lights, there were showers of fireworks taking off every second. While most of them were illegal it still created quite the show for flyers.
