RenOpen Streets, a new special event, is set for October 17, 2015.

The event, which will feature walking, biking, dancing and play along a designated route in Midtown and downtown, is hoping to promote healthy living, clear air and the support of local businesses.

The event has received sponsorships from the City of Reno, the Regional Transportation Commission and Renown Health.

“The City of Reno is proud to support RenOpen Streets, part of the international Cyclovia movement that promotes healthy and vibrant communities by closing streets for a day and giving people an area to celebrate, walk, bike, dance and play,” said Alexis Hill, special events manager for the City of Reno. “The new event meets the City’s priorities of a Vibrant Downtown and Safe & Healthy Neighborhoods. We look forward to seeing residents and visitors enjoying a traffic-free day during RenOpen Streets, and embracing a healthier lifestyle.”

RenOpen Streets is October 17, 2015 with a day filled with outdoor activities and community business highlights.
