Open Streets Event Set for Sunday, October 25

Come Play in the Street is the tagline for Knoxville’s first Open Streets event taking place on Sunday, October 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. Central Street between the Old City and Happy Holler will be filled with people of all ages as the streets are turned into playgrounds. Biking, walking, dancing, soccer, socializing and other family fun activities are encouraged – right in the middle of the street!

Businesses will be open along the one-mile route on Central Street and many different organizations will offer information demonstrations, classes, and activities. While you’re there, check out the Urban Wilderness Flat or Panini at Central Flats and Taps. A dollar from each one supports Legacy Parks!

The Open Streets movement is a way to bring the streets back to the people and let them enjoy the open spaces that are usually limited to motorized transportation. Several other U.S. cities and many other countries currently host ciclovia and open streets events. Knoxville’s event is hosted by Bike/Walk Knoxville, with support from the City of Knoxville and Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization.
