Neighborday Party in Mar Vista

EVENT DATE: Saturday, April 27, 8:00 p.m.
LOCATION: 12418 Pacific Ave. No. 4, Mar Vista 90066

Did you know April 27 is Neighborday? It's a made-up holiday promoted by, the community platform for "pragmatic idealists." On Neighborday, folks will get to know their neighbors at small events like a potluck or street clean-up, and large ones, organized by universities and nonprofits.

New Transition members Cameron and Juliet are inviting their neighbors (that's us!) to a gathering at their house for a Neighborday party. They suggest bringing a hand-drawn map of your local neighborhood. "Don’t be intimidated," urges Cameron. "Whether it’s five minutes of scribbles on a napkin or a cartographic masterpiece, we just want a glimpse into your favorite neighborhood spots. Have fun. No rules. Let Loose."

Sounds like our kind of Neighborday!

For inspiration creating your map, check out Cameron's pins on Pinterest:
