Big Easy Streets, an “Open Streets” event that brings together community groups, businesses, and aligns with the completed installation of Connect the Crescent. The Big Easy Streets event on September 15th is from 9am-12 noon and gives the local community the opportunity to walk, ride bikes, and hula hoop in the middle of Basin street. This “Open Streets” event is led by the New Orleans Health Department’s Fit NOLA initiative and will activate public space on Basin Street as a shared place for healthy activities. The event is free and open to the public with extended programming including: discussions on urban design, local business displays, healthy cooking demos, fitness classes, health screenings, and more. Residents can also tour the temporary roadway configurations by partaking in hourly bicycle tours of Connect the Crescent.
