The Wisconsin Bike Fed, Explore La Crosse, Downtown Mainstreet, Inc, and the City of La Crosse are planning the first annual Open Streets La Crosse. The event will take place Sunday, September 3rd beginning at 11:45 am with a press conference at Cameron Park followed by fun active play for community members and visitors.

The event will create a space on the streets between Cameron Park and Burns Park where people can bike, stroll, skate and dance in the streets enjoying fun activities provided by local businesses and organizations including yoga, painting, music, games, food and much more.

La Crosse is excited to join the national movement of Open Streets events which close the streets to automobile traffic for an afternoon to encourage people to see the streets as a public space where they can move actively and safely on the streets, connecting  with friends, neighbors and community businesses and organizations.

Everyone is invited to attend.
