Open Streets Minneapolis is back for its sixth season this summer. From Uptown to downtown, and touching all corners of the city, Open Streets upends the car-to-pedestrian hierarchy by creating a safe space for bicyclists, skateboarders, walkers, roller skaters, unicyclists, joggers, and stroller-riders to roam free on some of the city's main drags. Every Open Streets event is a little different, as each one is organized by neighbors and businesses, but there's usually a combination of kids' activities, art and cultural experiences, and food. Local businesses along each street often have special offerings on hand, and you'll see street vendors selling everything from jewelry to snacks. The real joy of Open Streets, however, is waltzing down the road in an exhaust-free environment. See openstreetsmpls.org for more info. On Nicollet, between Lake St. and W. 46th St.
