LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The CicLAvia open-streets festival went Hollywood Sunday, closing between East and West Hollywood to allow locals to walk, bike and skate through Tinseltown.
The event closed Hollywood and Santa Monica boulevards for a roughly 6.6-mile stretch, with only people-powered vehicles allowed between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The open-streets festival was designed to reconnect residents with their neighbors and community, while supporting local businesses and encouraging healthy outdoor activities.
Two more similar events are planned this year — on Oct. 9 in downtown Los Angeles and Dec. 4 in South Los Angeles.
CicLAvia officials have said more than 1.6 million people have taken part in the events over the years.
