Holidays bring the traditional Elysian Park tumbleweed snowmen

Hard to believe it’s Christmas time again, and the only thing that really makes us feel like it’s the holiday season are the neighborhood Holiday decorations!

The Eastsider LA reminds us that Elysian Park staff members are ready for yet another season, and are organizing volunteers to help put together the traditional tumbleweed snowmen/women for the park’s entrance on Stadium Way. We almost didn’t have the decorations last year when city budget cuts left Elysian Park without the money for staff and decorations. But volunteers stepped in and the snowmen were up!

While we do miss the snowman that frequented the corner of Scott Avenue and Stadium Way, but we know it takes a lot off effort – volunteers help to trim and put together the whole outfit made from recycled materials for each one.

If you’re interested in volunteering, snowman assembling is on Thursday, December 1, 2011 at 10:00 am at the park maintenance yard (Academy Road and Solano Canyon Drive). Email hello@TheEastsiderLA.com for schedule changes.

    I was just wondering how I might sign up for volunteering at Elysian Park full time.

    I intended to create you the bit of word to help say thanks once again for those beautiful things you have documented on this website. This is really incredibly open-handed with you to offer openly all many of us might have advertised as an e-book to help with making some cash for themselves, most importantly since you might have done it if you ever desired. These pointers in addition worked to be a fantastic way to understand that most people have a similar desire just as mine to understand a good deal more pertaining to this issue. I’m sure there are millions of more enjoyable opportunities ahead for those who look into your blog.
