Randy's DonutsFamous for its large sign in the shape of a doughnut in Inglewood, Randy’s Donuts is giving away doughnuts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The sign sits on top of the building on the corner of Manchester and La Cienega boulevards.

“It’s a good season for tourists, and we're hoping that the people that are able to get away from work will come,” said co-owner Larry Weintraub.

Originally part of the now-defunct Big Donut Drive-In chain, brothers Larry and Ron Weintraub have owned the store for 35 years. The 24-hour drive-through is one of four shops from the chain in Southern California that is still open.

Throughout the giveaway period, the shop will be hosting a band, selling souvenirs, giving away autographs and raffling off prizes, including a dozen doughnuts every week for a year.

Weintraub expects hundreds of people to take part in the festivities.
