Calling all Greenwood/Phinney Residents. We are inviting you to come out and play in the street.
Greenwood Summer Streets is back with a brand new name – PhinneyWoodSummer Streets! This free event opens the city’s largest public space – its streets – so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop – without having to watch out for cars.
In light of the recent bicycle and car crashes, events that open the streets to all non-motorized vehicles are especially meaningful. I feel this is an opportunity to ride in the street and feel safe. Not only feel safe but to have it be ours. On an ordinary day the road belongs to all users: bicyclists, cars, transit and pedestrians. We share the limited space. But this Friday the streets are claimed by people on foot and bike. Come outside and enjoy it!
This year, Summer Streets is partnering with the Greenwood/Phinney Chamber of Commerce and the Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Association for some good old fashioned fun. Local restaurants like Prost! will be providing food and drink specials for all. In the street there will be loads of kids’ activities, a carnival, live bands, battery-powered bikes, amazing aerial arts, live mural painting, international games, dance lessons in the street, a Tasty art fair, Seattle’s Largest Canned Food Pyramid, stilt walkers, a party at Urban Light Studios and TONS more for people of all ages. It will be a street filled with people. Imagine the possibilities…
