Its okay - go play in the street!
That's right kids (and grownups), go play inthe street!
This Saturday, August 14th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Denver's 23rd Avenue will be closed to auto traffic from City Park to Stapleton. Denver residents are pretty used to street closures for construction, but this time the street is being closed so we can get out and play!
The celebration is called Viva Streets, and it is being sponsored by LiveWell Colorado and Bike Denver. Instead of cars, 23rd Ave will be taken over by bikers and pedestrians wandering down the street to enjoy parades, food vendors, musicians, and more. Here's a map of the 'party zone' with markers of what is happening along the route.
