You're invited to enjoy an afternoon of active outdoor fun at Streets Alive!, from 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 10, hosted in the Belmont neighborhood. Streets Alive! is a free outdoor movement festival that encourages families to get up and get moving over two miles of streets closed to motorized traffic. You can walk, bike, skate, stroll or even dance your way down a route lined with nearly 100 exhibitors providing free health resources.
All along the route, enjoy music from rock to blues, with family favorite, The String Beans to entertain kids. Step along with country swing, Irish traditional dance, jazz, hip hop, or marvel at the beauty of Asian lion dancing. Kids will love bounce houses, Defy Gravity bubble soccer, and archery tag. Join in sports and fitness demonstrations including yoga, Tai Chi, fencing, lacrosse, fitness boot camps, and disc golf. Meet some of the Lincoln Stars hockey players, the Lincoln Saltdogs mascot, and look for special Husker guests on the basketball courts.
You can support the Streets Alive!/Belmont Community Development project by dousing Lincoln luminaries in the dunk tank to raise funds for an outdoor classroom in Belmont Park. Stop at the free photo booth to snap photos of your fun at Streets Alive!
The festival includes walking and biking trails through the Belmont Park and Max E. Roper Park, playgrounds at Belmont Elementary and both parks, community gardens, local businesses, fresh food from farmers' markets and local food trucks.
The event is family, child, pet, and wheelchair friendly, and is sponsored by Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln. You can find a festival route map at the website: HealthyLincoln.org/streetsalive
