Camping out by the L.A. River

Jun 1, 2014

GLASSELL PARK — There were campfires, ghosts 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.

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