Ice Cream Smiles Friday at the Ben & Jerry’s Stand at Open Streets on Franklin Avenue, in Minneapolis, MN.

Here Are Two Open Streets Events This Sunday

Open Streets Minneapolis on Nicollet Avenue is this Sunday, September 18th, between Lake St & W 46th St in Minneapolis, MN.  from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Open Streets Minneapolis is the perfect chance to promote healthy living, local businesses, sustainable transportation and civic pride in Minneapolis. On multiple days throughout the year, we create miles of safe, car-free streets so that residents of all ages can walk, bike, shop, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know one another.

Open Streets at Penn Fest is also this Sunday, September 18, Noon to 4 p.m. From Crosstown Highway 75th Street along Penn Ave, Richfield, MN 

Sometimes, Penn Avenue in Richfield is fairly quiet, and sometimes it’s bumper-to-bumper with cars, but neither will be the case on Sunday, September 18 from Noon to 4:00 pm. That’s when Open Streets at Penn Fest happens. On that day, Penn Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic and cars will be replaced with fun activities like music, dancing, crafts, sports, kids entertainment and more! People are welcome to ride bicycles or stroll down the avenue to enjoy the street without motorized vehicles to contend with. Businesses along Penn Avenue will be showcased and will be a part of the fun!
