Market Square to Lawrenceville
July 30
9 a.m.—1 p.m.

All our lives, we’re told not to play in the street—and for very good reason. But come Sunday, it’s anything goes in select city roadways, when OpenStreetsPGH hosts its third and final summer event.

Grab the entire family—and Fido—to walk, run, bike, dance, play, shop and eat your way along some of Pittsburgh’s most heavily trafficked streets during four fun-filled and car-free hours.

With streets temporarily closed to vehicles, the “Doughboy to Downtown” route will start in Market Square and travel through the Strip District to eclectic Lawrenceville.

There’s something for city explorers of all ages—whether you’re on foot, in skates—you name it—and it’s all free.

Kids will love the Wheel Mill’s BMX bicycle obstacle course, riding lessons with BikePGH and snowboarding sessions offered by Seven Springs.

Meet the Pittsburgh Parrot, take hip-hop dance classes and play friendly rounds of dodgeball in the popular “Gaga Pit!”

There’s also unicycling demos, a hoop jam circle and the Y on the Fly” van hosting free kids’ activities. Fitness hubs will be located in Market Square, and at Penn and 28th and Butler and 47th.
