About StreetsAlive!

The final StreetsAlive! of 2014 is coming fast! August 24 from Noon to 5 p.m. streets will once again come alive with movement.

Three miles of city streets will be closed to cars so you can walk, run, bike, rollerblade, dance and move in the streets. Special events, demonstrations and vendor booths will spill over into parking lots and parks along the route. Move and groove in the streets anywhere along the route!

Fun highlights: a painted, protected bicycle lane; a mini park (parklet) with Smiling Moose, a life-size version of Yummyland - the Extreme Candyland Makeover; the Play Outside Daily
(P-O-D) mobile recreation unit; NDSU bison everywhere (street soccer, street hoops, Gold Star marching band, and veggie kabobs at the Teammaker grill); a walk with the mayor (Del Rae Williams); native fire making using only sticks.

Back by popular demand: Slow Bike Race, Urban Yoga, wacky scientist Dr. Wylie, and latin dance and Zumba.

Sounds fun, you say? Like to participate, you say?? Want to learn more, you say??? Click the link below for a printable flyer and come move and groove in the streets with us on Sunday, August 24! See you there!

Here's your challenge: Help us to bring the streets alive the other 364 days of the year!

StreetsAlive! works to inspire people and organizations to adopt and celebrate more physically active lifestyles - to help change our culture to make active living the status quo. It's about embracing public spaces for activity and community engagement. It's about encouraging people to walk and bike to work or school. It's about connecting neighborhoods and people.

StreetsAlive! is organized by the CassClayAlive! and Active In Moorhead to inspire people to adopt more physically active lifestyles regardless of current fitness condition. Healthy People Initiative is changing our local food and fitness culture. We're guiding schools, childcares and individuals to create settings that will grow strong, healthy kids and families.

Again in May 2013, Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo have each earned Playful City USA recognition because of StreetsAlive! events plus active play efforts at schools and childcares through SchoolsAlive! and ChildcareAlive! Learn more at www.healthycc.org.

Active play is critical to healthy brain development, learning, health, social development and creativity - and ultimately prevents chronic disease!

Healthy places = healthy people. Healthy communities = healthy kids.
