From 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug 1, Open Streets will give friends and families the chance to enjoy the streets the way they want: biking, dancing, playing, walking and more!
The free event combines last year’s two Sunday Parkways event into one huge eight-mile event. Like last year, Open Streets will span from Logan Square to Little Village, passing through Humboldt Park, North Lawndale and Garfield Park along the way.
There is no event registration, and participants can join in at any point along the route.
The Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children is looking for volunteers to either:
1) Count participants at the event. These volunteers are needed for the 1st 15 minutes of each hour for an approximately 3 hour shift (8:30-11:30) or (11:30 to 2:00).
2) Conduct short (2 minute) surveys with participants regarding participation in the event. Surveyors would likely work more than 15 minutes per hour but work shorter shifts (e.g maybe 2 hours shifts).
We will provide a t-shirt, a short training and a $10 gift card to Target!
