Looking for a giant Godzilla or Thomas the Tank Engine piñata for your kid’s birthday party? You’ll find every imaginable colorful piñata in the somewhat secret downtown Los Angeles piñata district, around East Olympic Boulevard and South Central Avenue. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, order a custom made piñata.
Fill your piñata with candy (which you can find along with all sorts of other party gewgaws at the local vendors) and pummel to your heart’s content.
I cannot help but feel happy, strolling past the Technicolor piñatas while eating a fresh pupusa from a vendor’s cart!
East Olympic Avenue near South Central Avenue, Downtown Los Angeles. Open everyday but liveliest on the weekends.
