On Sunday, Fifth Avenue is going to have nothing but foot-powered transportation.
The streets will be shut down for activities for the community as part of Eugene Sunday Streets.
Coordinators say the event is free to the community, but because it’s free, they need volunteers to help put on the event. So far they have 70, and the goal is to get about 120.
Coordinators say volunteers are a big driving force for the event.
“Volunteers are very crucial because, like I said, it’s a free event so we can’t afford to pay staff and so to make the event happen, we need to have people in the community come out and show how important active transportation is to their community,” said Jordan Bailey, Eugene Sunday Streets coordinator.
Eugene Sunday Streets is Sunday, July 20 from 12-4 p.m.
There are two events this year like there was last year.
The second sunday streets is happening in the Harlow Neighborhood on Sept. 21.
