Description

Pedestrian Sundays: Celebrating Community, Culture, and Ecology By regularly reclaiming our streets from the mess of traffic and parking, our neighbourhood enjoys the opportunity to express its character. Its simple, we remove the automobile and the streets become a cultural playground an expression of our communitys diverse ethnicity, age and interests. Pedestrian Sundays are homemade - from the signs, to the music, to the giant piƱatas, its the human touch that sets these apart from other street festivals. Entertainers play for love not money; from the metal band of the bakers kid, to the jazz of the world renowned sax-playing neighbour. From movement inspired yoga&capoeira, to cooking and drawing classes, culture comes from behind closed doors and out into the street, delightfully blurring the line between performer and audience. When we eat, dance, and play in the streets together were sowing the seeds of community. Were making a statement about climate change, while creating the experience of what a livable city and a sustainable future could be simply by giving walking priority over the habit of driving. Its a local action that joins a global ecological movement. By hosting a Pedestrian Sunday, a community takes back their common space and celebrates a day of cleaner air. There is little more heart-warming than the wide-eyed smile of a young child exploring their street without fear of traffic.
