FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – It’s the one day a year you can take to Fort Wayne’s streets and enjoy the outdoors, without having to worry about traffic.
Open Streets is back Sunday. Calhoun Street from Pontiac Street to Promenade Park will be closed for the event. It goes from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
This is the 5th year for the event and includes the return of the Bike Parade. The parade kicks off the event at noon. Winners will be selected for best decorations. Over 100 activities, booths, and vendors will be set up.
Kids can get free bicycle helmets for the event thanks to Parkview Trauma Centers. Parents have to make an appointment online for a helmet fitting ahead of Sunday’s event.
Free helmets are available to children under the age of 16, and the giveaway is limited to two free helmets per household. Organizers said additional helmets for children and adults will also be available for purchase at a low cost during Open Streets.
The event is free to attend. Click here to learn more.
