The second-annual environmentally conscious outing also takes a cue from similar smog-free celebrations in London and Paris. Ours is different, though, because those cities close the streets, walk away, and let the people do whatever they want to do, says Moss. This is more than just having fun. Its about showing people that they can live and play in a downtown neighborhood.
Along with all the skating and biking, actors from Charenton, Red Hen, and Cleveland Public theaters will perform scenes from upcoming productions, while bands play some music. Down the road, instructors will give in-line-skating and bicycle-safety lessons. Plus, fitness gurus lead yoga and tai-chi workshops. Do something besides drive your car, says Moss. Take public transportation, walk, or ride a bicycle. If youve never experienced MLK Boulevard without cars, your mind will be blown.
Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Aug. 5. Continues through Aug. 26
