Strive Beyond and Folkmoot USA are teaming up to open up Brook Street to walking, biking and healthy movement of all kinds at an Open Streets event on Saturday, May 11 from 3 until 8pm.
This car-free event invites you to make the street your playground for the day. The fun includes: Bike Skills Rodeo, Live Music, Bike Raffles, Anything-That-Rolls Races, 9-Square and Other Street Games. Food and drinks will be available.
Brook Street, behind Folkmoot USA, will be closed to car traffic and opened to activities between Virginia Ave. and S. Main St., with additional activities and a marketplace in and around Folkmoot USA.
In addition, Bicycle Haywood is leading a family-friendly bike ride from Whole Bloomin’ Thing to Virginia Ave along a safe 1.5 mile route. The ride rolls out at 3pm. If you prefer to drive, you can park in designated satellite parking areas, all within a 1/4 mile walk of the Folkmoot Center.
Those interested should bring favorite things that roll … bikes, skates, skateboard, whatever, and discover a lot of fun activities like yoga in the street and chalk art.
