Atlanta Streets Alive closes city street to cars for a day so people can walk, bike, break dance and stroll about.
Imagine a street full of people of all ages and backgrounds, walking, biking, creating and laughing, together. A street temporarily closed to cars, but open to people. Imagine residents safely enjoying their city, socializing with neighbors, and engaging in healthy activities. Imagine if all of this were free, with absolutely no barriers to participation. By the people, for the people. Sound good yet?
ASA takes a valuable public space – our city’s streets – and opens them up for people to play, walk, bike, breathe, and make their own.
Modeled on tremendously successful events from around the world, including Bogotá, Colombia’s Ciclovia; Paris, France’s Paris Plage; and San Francisco’s Sunday’s Streets, ASA is part bike tour, part block party, and a great time for getting active, supporting local businesses along the route, people watching, and enjoying our amazing city!
Sounds pretty awesome, huh? Well they are looking for volunteers for the next event on October 17th.
Volunteers “marshal the route, direct participants, hand out water, assist with set up and break down, and help thousands of Atlantans enjoy the streets! Participants must attend one training (date TBD) and all volunteers will receive a free t-shirt when they volunteer.”
