BikeNWA Temporarily Shuts Down Streets in Fayetteville
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) - Bikers are taking over the streets of Fayetteville in a whole new way.
BikeNWA hosted an open-streets event on March 31, and temporarily shut down Prairie Street District in Fayetteville, creating corridor to safely walk, bike, roll, run, and dance in the streets.
It's the first of four free events to bring the community together and provide economic opportunities for local businesses.
Food trucks, a bouncy house, and live music were just a few of the activities provided today (March 31).
"We really work on getting a more connected network for you to walk and ride your bike, so this is an opportunity to showcase that with different organizations working towards that goal, and this is us working with the city of Fayetteville to accomplish that," BikeNWA Development Director, Candice Kozark, said.
Nearly 700 people showed up in Fayetteville.
The next open-streets events are listed below:
Bentonville -- May
Springdale -- July
Rogers -- Septemeber
