MORE:
In 2014, on the first Sunday of each month in April, May and June, a stretch of street was opened for family and friends to enjoy walking, running, dancing, skating, or cycling down the block while visiting the many businesses in the neighborhood. Thanks to a three-year sponsorship agreement with Cigna, Sunday Streets is back for a second year in a row with a new name. Cigna Sunday Streets is modeled on other events from around the world including Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia and the Paris Plage in France. Sunday Streets originated in Bogotá, Colombia as “Ciclovía,” a day of free, healthy activities that promote community in public streets. Thirty years later, the concept has spread around the world from Tokyo, Japan to Kiev, Ukraine and throughout U.S. Cities that include San Francisco, Portland, St. Louis, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Minneapolis. Cigna Sunday Streets is a project of the Mayor’s Office of Special Events and the Health and Human Services Department.
