PBS Kids music host Mr. Steve, famed for his Recess Rocks theme song and video, was a featured guest at the August event. His video combines vigorous physical activity and a host of leaping, twisting, twirling school kids grooving to the Recess Rocks beat.

Three miles of streets through downtown Fargo and Moorhead were shut down to motorized traffic to encourage walking, running, biking, rollerblading, skating, dancing and other human movement.

Activity stations invited you to jump into a fitness class, play games, whirl hoola hoops, watch demonstrations and eat healthy foods.

Thanks for hitting the streets! Bringing your dance! Bringing your music! Volunteering! Bringing friends and neighbors together to walk, run, pedal stroll and skate.

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.
