For the second year, the streets of Macon will be closing Sunday for residents to get out and enjoy the sights and sounds of downtown.
Open Streets Macon will close College Street and Montpelier Avenue from Washington Memorial Library to A.L. Miller Village, and visitors can enjoy activities such as yard games and an interactive music installation as well as musical performances, art exhibits, food and drink.
“We had about 1,200 people counted last year and had a great time,” said Rachel Hollar, executive director of Bike Walk Macon, who organized the event. “We had a good diversity of people of different ages and from different neighborhoods come out to play in the street.”
While bikes aren’t required to attend, a Bicycle Parade will kick off the day at 2:30 p.m.; participants are asked to meet at the intersection of College Street and Washington Avenue at 2 p.m., with free bike decorating for the first 30 people.
