Sunday Streets Berkeley

From Sunday Streets Berkeley:

Cycle, stroll, skate, dance, discover and play in the streets.

Berkeley’s 2013 event will create almost two miles of parkways in the heart of the city.

Sunday Streets Berkeley opens the city’s major car-traffic corridor to pedestrians, cyclists, all kinds of active transportation and recreational and social activities such as: dancing, skating, musical jam sessions, chess games, soccer, pedal-powered music & free bike repair. Businesses along the route, musicians, artists, yoga teachers, restaurateurs and community organizations use the new public space creatively, providing spontaneity and discovery.
