There will be dancin', and more, in the streets on July 19 for Cincy Summer Streets

  Cincy Summer Streets is a celebration of our largest public space - our city streets. 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. To give us a preview of the events is Margy Waller, serendipity director with Art on the Streets, and Melissa McVay, City of Cincinnati Department of Transportation & Engineering Senior City Planner, and city liaison for bike programs.

The Westwood Trail will create a “Safe Routes to School” connection with Western Hills High School.
