EUGENE, Ore. — Thousands made it out for the Eugene Sunday Streets event. Residents got to see live entertainment, learn how to skate and meet different people from the community.
Organizers of Sunday Streets say the free event is one of the most popular gatherings of the year and more importantly, it helps to build a stronger sense of community by showing people that the roads belong to everyone.
“We just really want to make sure people know that these streets are our streets. They belong to the public. They belong to everyone, not just cars or service vehicles, but also to cyclists, walkers and everyone in the community,” says Volunteer Coordinator Ariel Coleman.
The second Sunday Streets is on September 21 in the Harlow neighborhood. Click here for details.
