Organizers of Sunday's CicLAvia festival estimated that more than 100,000 people turned out to bike, walk, run and roller-skate along 7 ½ miles of downtown streets that were closed to cars for the event. No major incidents or injuries were reported, though because of temperatures reaching the low 90s and because of low humidity, organizers had to remind people to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. Sunday's car-free event, dubbed Heart of LA, was the third this year and the eighth since CicLAvia began in 2010 in downtown Los Angeles.

Every year at Knott's Halloween Haunt, I spend the whole night visiting the dozen or so haunted mazes at the Buena Park theme park. Photos: Halloween Haunt 2013 Shows | Mazes With only six to seven hours to hit all the Knott's Scary Farm mazes, there's never enough time to catch any of the shows - except for maybe "The Hanging" if I'm lucky. Review: Knott's Halloween Haunt 2013 focuses on quality over quantity It really takes two full nights to see everything Haunt has to offer.

The Red Knight gallops onto the battlefield astride a chestnut horse. Fifty feet away, the Green Knight squares off against him. Lances at the ready, the two horsemen charge each other to the blare of trumpets and the cheers from hundreds of lords and ladies (many of them very small lords and ladies). This could be an English meadow 600 summers ago. Instead, it's a concrete facsimile of a medieval castle plopped down on a busy street in Buena Park. And the man underneath those crimson robes isn't really the Red Knight - he's William Elliot III, 35, who grew up in Orange County and once dreamed of becoming a magician.

But for a few "don't you have anything better to write about" comments, my column about illegal fireworks being set off by amateurs has generated many more complaints about - illegal fireworks. "How you could omit Highland Park from your article astounds me," wrote a resident of that community. "Hands down, the 90042 ZIP code wins the award for incendiarism. Our neighbors not only set off rounds upon rounds of illegal fireworks, they shoot guns. Being an ex-military family, we know our explosives!
