The back of Homeland Cultural Center at the graffiti wall, MacArthur Park (1321 E. Anaheim St.). Lunch immediately following at Grand Paradise Restaurant (1350 E. Anaheim St.).

The band will take a whirl on Cambodia Town’s new cargo bike and commuter bikes to bring attention to Cambodia Town and the unadulterated fun of bicycling. The event is open to the public — who are invited to arrive via bicycle. Members of the media and the public are invited to dine at the restaurant via individual reservations or first come, first served.

Cambodia Town is one of four Bike-Friendly Business Districts (BFBDs) in Long Beach, intended to encourage merchants and their customers to choose bikes, not cars, for short trips. The districts each have cargo and commuter bikes for merchant errands and offer bicyclists discounts every Saturday through the new Bike Saturdays program, free bike repairs, bike valets at events, and more. The BFBD program is made possible by the Department of Health and Human Services through the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the City of Long Beach.
