It doesn’t matter if you walk or bike, there’s something for everyone–streets will be filled with live performances, giant board games, local food and shops.

According to OpenStreetsPGH.org, the event helps people see their streets in a more personal way. “OpenStreetsPGH temporarily closes streets and invites Pittsburghers to reimagine their streets as places for people, not just cars.” 

Stroll through the streets, it’s all yours! The event makes for some unique summer fun. “This free event series connects communities to each other and creates a safe place for people of all ages to walk, bike, roll, and dance through 11 neighborhoods in 2019.”
