Cincinnati will close-down traffic on two major roads on Saturday, July 19 - one on the east side of town, one on the west - to create a car-free space for everyone to play, run, walk, bike, skate, dance, create art, connect with their neighbors, and support local businesses. The two events are free, fun, and all are invited.
