Update on Thursday, October 12: Due to poor air quality, the event has been canceled for 2017.
On Sunday, October 15, Shattuck Avenue will close down to car traffic from the north end at Rose Street in the Gourmet Ghetto to the southern end of Downtown Berkeley at Haste. Bikes, scooters, strollers, and wagons are welcome, as are pedestrians.
Local vendors will line the edges of the street offering food, information, and experiences all in the name of building community. Restaurants will open their doors (and hopefully their bathroom doors) many offering special snack options or patio seating where there isn't normally any.
Look for face painting, juggling shows, arts & crafts, and live music. Kids will be able to play giant chess games, hula hoop, climb, and draw with chalk in the street, among other amusements.
Sunday Streets is a great family outing. Stay as long or short as you like, bring your own food or eat at a restaurant, and walk right down the middle of the road, worry-free. See you there!
