Night on Broadway

It was quite the colorful scene at the 4th annual Night on Broadway street festival in Downtown, Los Angeles! Night on Broadway is a part of Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar’s Bringing Back Broadway initiative, a revitalization plan to boost economic development and historic preservation along Broadway and re-establish the street as the heart of downtown. Our WSS x Rookie USA pop-up shop is located right on the historic Broadway street between 5th and 6th (547 S. Broadway). It was a no brainer to join Night on Broadway as a business sponsor and offer new visitors to our Kids store a special discount. Our street team provided some great entertainment to those who passed on by with our interactive basketball game. With over 10,000 people in attendance, we were happy to be a part of a new cultural event in the heart of Downtown, Los Angeles!
