Sunday, September 25 marked the first day for Open Streets Detroit, an international program that closes down streets to motorized traffic and opens them to bikes, pedestrians, and apparently, dinosaurs.
The inaugural event started at Campus Martius Park Sunday at noon. Streets were closed to cars down Michigan Avenue and along West Vernor Highway. Many tents and stands were set up along the way, with the main hubs located at Campus Martius, Roosevelt Park, and Clark Park. With the roads closed to traffic, you can get an even greater idea of how wide Michigan Avenue really is.
Did you miss it this week? No worries. Open Streets Detroit will happen again this Sunday, October 2 from 12-5. Our photographers Michelle and Chris Gerard caught some of the action this week, including giant Jenga, games, dinosaurs, and all sorts of bikes. Here's an idea of what you might have missed at Open Streets.
