Love Our Neighborhood Day 

When: Sat., July 12, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014
Price: free
The organizers behind Love Our Neighborhood Day want you to know that their event is not a street fair. While there will be food trucks, the main purpose of the event is not for vendors to sell their wares, but for pedestrians and bicyclists to wield control over the streets, instead of drivers. The festival is part of the open streets initiative Oaklavía, and takes place this weekend in Oakland’s Golden Gate neighborhood on Doyle Street and San Pablo Avenue between 55th and 65th Streets. People are encouraged to dance, play, and picnic in the streets, which will be closed off to car traffic. Activities include performances by Destiny Arts Center and Emeryville Taiko, live music by Shake Your Peace and Justin Ancheta, arts and crafts, and a park zone with bike spin art. The event is meant to showcase all of the local businesses, community resources, and organizations people have access to without needing to leave their neighborhood.
