LOS ANGELES (AP) - It's a car free day in parts of LA.

Some seven-and-a-half miles of Los Angeles streets in and around downtown are closed to motor vehicles Sunday as the city's eighth CicLAvia (sick-luh-VEE'-uh) festival opens the lanes to cyclists.

With Grand Park as a hub, the closed roadways stretch north to Chinatown, west to MacArthur Park and east to Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights.

More than 10,000 cyclists, skaters and pedestrians are expected to participate in CicLAvia, modeled on a weekly car-free event started in Bogota, Colombia.

Food trucks, musical performers and neighborhood guides are set up along the route. The streets will be closed to cars until 4 p.m.
