December 12th - Holiday Parade & Shop Hop!!!!

Ho Ho Hop

It’s the First Annual Echo Park Holiday Shop Hop!

It’s a day of togetherness in the neighborhood with food, music, art, performances, workshops, shopping, fun, parties, dancing & holiday celebration into the wee hours!

But it’s not just a day for Holiday fun – it’s a day for giving, as Masa & the other participating businesses will be taking donations & raising money
for good causes, like:

Masa will be collecting toys for Central City Action Committee and Masa & Stories will be selling Stockings (with Rhonda’s Homemade Dog Biscuits) to benefit the Echo Park Animal Alliance. We will also be collecting clean old blankets, towels, pet bedding, toys, etc. to donate to the North Central Animal Shelter

Future, Stories & 826LA / Echo Park Time Travel Mart will be collecting new Toiletries & Clothing for the Good Shepherd Center/Languille Emergency Shelter for Women & Children
