Ciclovia (seek–low –via ) Open Streets Pensacola, originated in Bogotá, Colombia in the 1970s and really took off around the world in the 90’s. Pensacola will join this progressive list of cities on March 25th, 2017 with our own HUGE Open Streets event. Open Streets started as a way to close city streets to motor traffic and let people ride, skateboard, walk, shop or just play in the street. We will close Main and Palafox from Gulf Power to The Maritime Park and Palafox from the Pier to Garden St. The Mayor wants everyone with a heartbeat, all ages, to come out and enjoy the streets safely! There will be lots of activities and even some surprises. Don’t miss it! Save the Date! Invite your friends!
