DTLA LIFE MAG #28 | SUMMER 2016 - Page 42

Last month, OUE hosted the official grand opening weekend of OUE Skyspace LA. Guests flocked from near and far to be among the first to experience the public debut of California’s tallest open-air observation deck and Skyslide with a slew of celebratory events throughout the weekend. The ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted local and international VIPs as OUE Skyspace LA opened its doors for the very first time. It was a great success for the new DTLA attraction. On Saturday, June 25 5,000 tickets were sold for the grand opening day alone, and more than 20,000 people attended the block party festivities surrounding the US Bank Tower; meanwhile, atop OUE Skyspace LA, over 2,400 people rode down the exhilarating, 45-foot, outdoor, glass Skyslide. The block party included an array of free, live entertainment and performances from Snoop Dogg, Far East Movement, Niykee Heaton, and more. Followed by a spectacular pyrotechnics finale culminated the evening’s festivities. SKYSPACE LOS ANGELES 633 West Fifth Street Suite 840 Los Angeles, CA 90071 (213) 894 9000 www.skyspace-la.com
