About the Downtown Walk About
The Walk About is part of the international “Open Streets” movement hosted by the St. Cloud Downtown Council. These events typically involve the temporary closing of the streets or, rather, opening up of selected streets to motor vehicle traffic, making them available to all non-motorized transportation and people of all abilities. With key messages and strategic execution, open streets events can be a powerfully persuasive experience that invites the public to re-imagine the streets as not just a place for motor vehicles, but a place for people. The 5K Fun Run (no registration or experience necessary) starts at Brother’s Bar & Grille on 5th Avenue at 9:00 am. All other Walk About activities, over 80, are between noon – 4pm throughout Downtown. Ride your bikes to the event and take in all of that is happening throughout the day.”
