Participants in the Trespass Parade make their way up Broadway. The event, described by the organizer as "a hybrid between parade and protest" is part of opening activities for Pacific Standard Time.

Art and activism collided in front of a largely-puzzled crowd of Broadway shoppers on Sunday afternoon as the Trespass Parade made its way through the heart of Downtown.

The event, part of the six-month Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time, was aimed at inspiring local residents to participate in their artistic and social communities. It was organized by the non-profit West of Rome public art gallery, musician Arto Lindsay and artist Rirkrit Tiravanija.

Parade floats assembled Sunday morning at L.A. Mart, and traveled up Broadway to meet on-foot participants at 12th and Broadway. At roughly 1:15pm the parade entered Broadway's historic corridor, blaring new wave music.
