Open Streets is part of the Cyclovia movement that is spreading throughout the United States and the world aimed at promoting healthy, vibrant communities. Its a national movement you can check out in the video below.
The global open streets movement comes to Reno Saturday, October 17, 2015 for RenOpen Streets. The free event closes down 1.5 miles of streets to vehicles and opens them up to pedestrians, cyclists, dancers and more.
The City of Reno, Washoe County Health District and Reno Bike Project collaborate on this event in an effort to spread awareness on the importance of physical activity, clean air to play in and getting out into the community to support local businesses.The community is invited to play in the streets on a route from Riverside to Midtown and develop a new level of appreciation for what Reno has to offer. Interactive family-friendly activity stations dotted along the route are provided by local businesses and include dancing, art, food, games and more. By incorporating businesses both on and off the event route, participants become more aware of what services and products are available locally.
You'll be hearing a lot more about this event as it approaches in the Fall. Sounds fun!
