Open Streets Auckland – Sunday 12th April

March 20, 2015

I may have played a part in the graphics, they sure look familiar.

Sunday 12th April, 10am – 4pm

Quay Street, from Princes Wharf to Tinley Street (That’s 1km)

Open Streets is an international initiative to claim the street for walking, cycling, playing and socialising. At Open Streets 2015, the road will be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic. You can stroll or ride in a car-free space and enjoy a variety of activities, with street entertainers, family fun, sports activities, guided tours, street games, a heritage trial, chill out areas, and much more. Get your family and friends together, say goobye to your car and come explore the waterfront.

I’ve watched my friends in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco having a ball at these for years so it’s very exciting to finally get one in Auckland. There was a similar gig last year called Ciclovía, but it slipped under the radar somewhat. For 2015 we have a name Kiwis understand, professional event organisation, much more promotion and a bigger slice of Quay Street. Can’t wait!

Show the powers-that-be Aucklanders want this event by turning up in droves, with your significant other, with the kids, the neighbour’s kids, your dog if you have one. Oh, and your bikes, don’t forget to bring your bikes!
