Modeled after successful open street events around the country, Open Streets ICT closes four miles of Douglas Avenue from the College Hill neighborhood to the historic Delano District. Traffic will be closed off, and the street will be open for young and old alike to enjoy biking, walking, running, dancing, yoga, entertainment, food, art, music, and more.
