The Los Angeles Lakers will retire Kobe Bryant's No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys at halftime of Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center, but fans won't have to attend the contest to take part in the celebration. 

As explained by Marissa Wenzke of KTLA, the Lakers are hosting a Kobeland street festival ahead of the game. 

The fair features a "Kobe-inspired ferris wheel," interactive games, a shootout game and a live DJ. 

Per Matthew Moreno of Lakers Nation, the franchise created a similar Shaqtown to celebrate the unveiling of Shaquille O'Neal's statue last season.
