This coming Sunday, September the 26th, will be the last Sunday that Myrtle Street is closed to traffic between Hall and Clermont Street, turning Myrtle into a “temporary neighborhood plaza” that is “perfect for dancing, cycling, strolling, and people watching!”
Not to mention eating, music listening, game playing, and quirky pedestrian fun!
From noon to 6pm (well, only 3 pm on the 12th due to rain) on the previous 3 Sundays the temporary plaza has featured FREE music, workshops, performances, games, art and more, along with food and fun (not all of which is free of course, but hey, its still pretty cool).
The September 26thMove About Myrtle is scheduled to feature a “bile/scooter/big wheel parade” for the whole 5-block length of the party accompanied by all sorts of “bike-themed programs.”
There will also be a side-walk chalking contest complete with prizes as well as a pair of BAMcafe Djs to provide some dance inducing beats, in addition to many more fun and exciting activities.
Check out The Myrtle Minute to see all the fun that was during previous weeks.
But whatever you do, don’t miss out on this chance to take Myrtle back! Or at least to have some fun playing in the middle of the street as we say good-bye to Summer and hello to Fall, Clinton Hill style.
