Boulder Green Streets is a car-free community play day, where downtown city streets are taken over by pedestrians to promote active, healthy living, sustainability and strong community. This years event will take place on Sunday, September 19th, 2010 from 8am-4pm. The route starts on East Pearl and runs from 15th to Folsom. Linked block parties will also be held throughout the town. Along the route there will be numerous zones where participants can watch, try, and get more information about a variety of activities, services and related community programs. Community members of all types will enjoy over 50 different FREE activities, demonstrations, and workshops (many bi-lingual). Some of the activities that will be offered include cycling saftey, demonstrations and repair, cycling meet-ups for a variety of distance rides, running the route with a creek loop, walking tours of downtown, hiking meet ups, dance classes, yoga, martial arts, frisbee, climbing, a samba in the streets carnival march and more! You’ll find a lot along the route to keep you moving… good music, healthy snacks and new friends. “Experience” sustainability yourself and learn more about living well in Boulder. BoulderGreenStreets, a “street liberation project” will unfold its one-mile-long, car-free community festival along East Pearl Street, from 15th St. to Folsom. Festival activities run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include play space for walking, bike-riding, road races, and games.
