Walk, bike and roll on car-free streets of downtown at the 3rd Annual Eugene Sunday Streets organized by the City of Eugene Public Works Transportation Options program. This wonderful event promotes healthy, active living by opening the city's largest public space - its streets. Participants will have the opportunity to discover active transportation in a safe, traffic-free environment.
The Summer in the City—Downtown program is on board as well with a fun activity center at Kesey Square. There will be live music by two local bands, the Texas Toasters and Late for Dinner, and a live DJ food stamp, all pedal--powered. In addition, there will be an obstacle course provided in partnership with Trips for Kids and a make-your-own-art station by MECCA for kids of all ages, and temporary art will be unveil. There will also be food carts, a beer garden and much more! Visit http://www.eugenesundaystreets.org and http://www.eugene-or.gov/SummerintheCity for details.
