Downtown "Fun Bus" to Broadway and 4th St. Businesses

Broadway and Redondo


shops on BroadwayThe Big Red “Fun Bus” is a free ride on Thursdays from 6 pm to Midnight and Saturdays from 1 pm to 6 pm – as a way of connecting all the cool shops and dining establishments along Broadway and 4th Street between Pine and Redondo while passengers listen to live music and enjoy special promotions offered through their website. Broadway businessesIt’s being funded by business owners on Pine through Downtown Long Beach Associates as a way of connecting their businesses in a fun way from downtown and the East Village to the neighborhoods of Belmont Heights (historic district), Bluff Park (historic district), Bluff Heights and Alamitos Beach along the Broadway and 4th St., which adjoins Rose Park South (historic district).
It's a great opportunity to visit stores and shops such as KiKi Originals, an alternative to the warehouse style bridal stores "where you feel like a number instead of a bride." Shop owner, Kim Kessler, a resident of Long Beach for over ten years, has made dreams come true for her brides. KiKi Originals can design anything you can dream of for your wedding party including bridal gowns, bridesmaids, flower girls, and mothers. Sasha's Living With Style just recently expanded into a period Craftsman-style house on Broadway (see first photo above) which had been a rental for many years. The house is typical of many houses originally built in the area, and a great setting for her home design store.
