Camping out by the L.A. River

GLASSELL PARK — There were campfires, ghost stories and passing Metrolink passenger trains during Saturday night’s “First Ever L.A. River Camp Out.” Of course, homeless people live and sleep along the river channel but technically it has not been legal to camp out on the river for decades. Saturday night’s campout, organized by the arts group Clockshop in partnership with California State Park, is  part of ongoing efforts to increase the recreational use of the river.

An estimated 100 campers took part in the event, photos of which were shared on social media:
