Open Streets in Charlotte

Open Streets 704 is this Sunday, May 7 from 1-5pm.

That’s right…Open Streets 704 is BACK! This Sunday, join the Charlotte community for the next installment of Open Streets 704, this time in Plaza Midwood and Elizabeth.

If you’re unfamiliar with Open Streets you can check out this amazing health & community initiative here. But in short, “Open Streets 704 powered by BlueCross Blue Shield of North Carolina is a series of four Charlotte events that will literally open a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people!” It encourages locals to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.

The event is this Sunday, May 7 from 1-5pm. You can check out the route here.

We had the opportunity to partner again with the organizers, Well-Run Media and the Mecklenburg County Department of Parks & Recreation, on a Clean Graffiti campaign. Check out these photos.

We absolutely love working with this initiative. The concept behind Open Streets is everything we can stand behind; community building, walking (follow us on Instagram stories to see some of our walking adventures), being active with the family, being outside. It’s. Awesome.

Both of us will be hitting the streets in celebration this coming Sunday. We’ll be running around, doing some yoga, maybe biking, playing hopscotch, meeting the neighbors and just having fun!

We hope to see you!
