Get excited for another opportunity to join us as we close the streets to cars and open them to YOU on October 7th!
Maconites will experience nearly 2 miles of car-free streets on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. (from the Ocmulgee River to the Industrial District) and Cherry St. (from Cherry Street Plaza to Bernd Park). Organized by Bike Walk Macon, Open Streets Macon is a car-free celebration of public space; bringing people together to walk, skate, bike, play, and re-imagine how we use our streets. Come and join, it's free!
WHAT IS OPEN STREETS?
Open Streets programs, also known as Ciclovias, is a movement to activate people, strengthen businesses, and inspire public spaces by temporarily closing streets to cars. This is a free, regularly occurring program that offers Macon the opportunity to experience city streets in a whole new way, taking an active role in this global movement.
Sunday, October 7th from 2 pm to 6 pm
The route will connect 3 Macon neighborhoods, the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, and countless Macon landmarks, restaurants, and businesses via Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard. View the route map here: http://bit.ly/2ErV2ZU.
