Celebrate the Parks

The Parks Area Foundation is excited to announce that the"Celebrate the Parks" open street event is back for the third year. Last year was a huge success. We had over 3,000 people attend, and 50 bicycles with helmets were given to our neighborhood youth (Thank you Bicycle Collective & Blank Childrens’ Hospital.) We featured 50 vendors, had Turnaround Arts student performances, Wiki-Block placemaking furniture, and even a mural unveiling.

 

This year’s Celebrate the Park was scheduled for Sunday, May 17th from 12-4 pm but is now postponed. When the event happens, we will shut down 6th Avenue from Euclid to Douglas Ave for a family friendly afternoon. Please join us in celebrating our northside community and all of the exciting revitalization work we’ve been up to.
