Description of Event:
We would like to formally invite you to be a part of this year’s 5th annual Lawrence Ciclovía events. This event is a MHTF S.A.L.S.A. (Supporting Active Life Styles for All) supported event, to expose small businesses and increase their sales in the downtown area. It is also a way to promote physical activity, and fight obesity and chronic diseases. Last year, the Lawrence Ciclovía attracted over a thousand people each Sunday to the downtown area. We are looking forward to another successful event.
Ciclovia will be held on Sunday, August 5th and Sunday September 9th, from 3:00pm—7:00pm where the City will close Essex Street, from the corner of Union Street to Lawrence Street, and a portion of Common Street. The Lawrence Ciclovía connects its participants with vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through this car-free event. By closing streets to traffic, the roads become an extension of the park and create larger public places for families to enjoy the outdoors, walking, cycling and other activities
During the hours of a Ciclovía, roadways are closed to ALL motorized vehicular traffic and opened for biking, walking, jogging, skate and long boarding, and other forms of physical activities. Stations are also set up for aerobics, Zumba, short games, hopscotch, jump rope, biking, cycling and much more We are very excited about this year’s Ciclovia as we will have increased involvement of various cultural clubs to host activities from their native countries in an effort to bring a diverse cultural flavor to our event.
