Streetfilms: Thousands Play in Oakland’s Streets at First-Ever ‘Oaklavia’

On Sunday, June 27th, downtown Oakland opened two miles of its streets
to fun and activities—zumba dancing, circus arts, BMX bike competitions
and performances from local musicians. Walk Oakland Bike Oakland (WOBO)
partnered with the East Bay Bicycle
Coalition
, Oaklandish, Oakland YMCA, Cycles of Change, and other
civic organizations to create the East Bay's first “Sunday Streets”
style event. Preparations are in
the works
for another Oaklavia in
the near future.
