Sunday Streets 

When: Sun., Oct. 13, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. 2013
Price: free
Pedestrians will replace cars on one of Berkeley’s most trafficked avenues during the city’s second annual Sunday Streets. Part of a nationwide movement that transforms urban streets into car-free zones, the event will shut down Shattuck Avenue to automobiles from Rose Street to Haste Street for five hours. Attendees are encouraged to use the space creatively, and activities will include bike rodeos, dance performances, yoga classes, and more. Among the highlights are a pop-up parklet installed by Livable Berkeley, pedal-powered beat-boxing by Cello Joe, and libations courtesy of Drake’s Brewing Company. For the nerds among you, there will be hands-on science activities hosted by Berkeley Lab and Science@Cal, as well as a giant chess game set up by the Berkeley Chess School. Last year, more than 40,000 people turned out, so be prepared for a crowd.
