ECHO PARK –– Residents lined both sides of Sunset Boulevard today to watch a long line of school drill teams, bands, classic cars and Santa make their way through the heart of the neighborhood during the Echo Park Community Parade.
Not everyone who came down to Sunset to celebrate the holidays. Some parade goers said that a small group of demonstrators were protesting gentrification and the displacement of artists. One man was seen being apprehended by police as he yelled “Echo Park hates homeless people” near Sunset and Echo Park Avenue.
