Circle the City celebrations make the city your playground by reimagining a Boston where the streets are a space for people and safe, outdoor activities are for everyone. Last year, more than 6,500 Bostonians hit the streets for special days of fun, community activities featuring a new neighborhood each time. Don’t miss the chance to get in on the fun and explore the neighborhoods surrounding Blue Hill Avenue at the next Circle the City event coming up this Sunday, September 29th.
This weekend, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy will be stopping traffic and making way for play by co-sponsoring a car-free corridor through Roxbury on Blue Hill Ave between Grove Hall Plaza and Dudley Common (see the map here). Bostonians from every neighborhood will be invited to walk, bike, and dance together from 1 to 5pm. This is a great opportunity to get to know a new area of your favorite city or welcome new friends into your beautiful neighborhood with more than 50 free activities to enjoy together. Kids of all ages will want to get in on the fun activities like dance games and the Fruit and Veggies Wheel organized by the Boston Collaborative for Food and Fitness. Parents will love the live music performances going on all afternoon. We can all appreciate that local businesses are teaming up to promote safe and fun opportunities for families to get active outdoors on car-free and care-free streets in our communities.
