Open Streets DC has hosted another block party in Northwest, giving the area an opportunity to have a little midday fun in the summer heat.
“I encourage residents to meet us on bikes, skates, scooters or feet as we enjoy a day outdoors,” she said
The event, hosted by the District Department of Transportation, is part of an ongoing global initiative to allow people to “experience their city streets in a whole new way.”
Temporary road closures made space for Bike Rodeos, Virtual Reality experiences, Live art and fitness classes, a silent disco and a fit zone with Zumba, yoga and strength training options.
Open Streets DC has hosted one other event this year in Anacostia.
The next planned event will be in Ward 7 along Benning Road Northeast — a date has yet to be announced. Updates for plans in Wards 5 and 3 are available at OpenStreets.dc.gov.
