It's not every day that citizens can experience and explore the streets of St. Petersburg without cars. The event is a celebration of cyclists, pedestrians, runners, skaters, and all forms of people-powered movement. Family-friendly activities will be programmed throughout the day, including fitness classes, bike safety obstacles, music, food, games, and giveaways.
Open Streets St. Pete celebrates Cyclovia (also known as ciclovía or "open streets"), a popular tradition that began in Bogota, Colombia, where major city streets are temporarily closed and re-purposed into safe and open, car-free environments every Sunday.
