‘Sunday Streets Alive’ is this weekend in Vancouver

Posted by on August 14th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

This just in from our Vancouver, Washington correspondent Madeleine von Laue:

If you’re suffering from Sunday Parkways withdrawal, relief is in sight. Vancouver is hosting its first open streets event this coming Sun, August 18, 11am-4pm. Sunday Streets Alive will open up the downtown, Officers Row through the National Historic Reserve, streets by Marshall Center and Clark College and the uptown neighborhood. The route goes near a lively Farmers’ Market, and fun activities are planned in parks along the way – Zumba, circus classes, pet shows stilt walking, disc golf. Music of course will waft through the air, and food booths will feed hungry participants.

The route and one of the activity centers are just a short five blocks from the I-5 bridge. Vancouver is also served by public transportation; the yellow line Max stop at Delta park has a C-TRAN bus connection to downtown Vancouver.

Organizers still need volunteers to make the event a success. In addition to providing critical support, volunteers will of course also have time to enjoy the fun! To find out how to volunteer or get more information about the event, visit www.sundaystreetsalive.org.

If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan

    Thanks for a great day, Madeleine, Eric and the rest who made Streets Alive possible! Fun stuff to do, see and hear all along the route. I’ll be back for more tamales from Sabor Mexicano. Glad to see Chris Smith came over for the ride. I’ve never seen so many cargo/box bikes in Vancouver. Loved all the chalk in the streets and waves from the intersection volunteers. Do it again!
