Thousands Play in Oakland’s Streets at the First-Ever ‘Oaklavia’

8:18 AM PDT on July 7, 2010

(editor's note - If people enjoy the Streetfilms' on the Ciclovia's happening across the country and the world, you can find a gallery with all of them here.- DN)

On Sunday, June 27th, Downtown Oakland opened two miles of its streets
to fun and activities—zumba dancing, circus arts, BMX bike competitions
and performances from local musicians. Walk Oakland Bike Oakland (WOBO) partnered with the East Bay Bicycle Coalition, Oaklandish, Oakland YMCA, Cycles of Change, and other civic organizations to create the East Bay's first “Sunday Streets” style event. Preparations are in the works for another Oaklavia in the coming months.
