Join us for a fun celebration of moving!

Happy City is celebrating active transportation on Saturday, August 26, 2023, from 12-4 pm.

We encourage people to leave their cars at home and walk, wheel, skate, or take the bus to the Downtown Pedestrian Mall near Solomon’s Lane (Water Street 150’s block) to join our Active Streets Festival (for kids and adults) and enjoy plenty of movement-related entertainment!

You must be wondering… what is active transportation?

Active transportation is regular movement undertaken as a means of transport to get to and from places. It can be anything that gets you moving!

How Active Streets Festival 2023 can pump you up

The Festival will promote several forms of active transportation while highlighting the pros of choosing different ways to get around. See Happy City’s new map showing how accessible Metrobus stops/routes connect with the City’s snow-clearing priorities. Next, the Festival will showcase information about city trails, cycling, and other activities that don’t require a private car.

Cities are for people, not cars.

Exercise? I thought you said accessorize!

We will have a face painting station and a bike decoration station. Kids should want to ride their bikes. Whether they want to move with style or pedal to the beat of their own drum!

Setting the bar high

Our colourful tent and various tables will have a fun atmosphere for the whole family. It is all in service of promoting activities and improving the lives of everyone in the community of all ages and interests.

Come to the Active Streets Festival.
Get moving in any way you can. At any heart rate, let’s get started.
