On Sunday, the streets of Montclair Center were filled with people of all ages biking, walking, dancing, jumping rope, and hula hooping at the first annual Open Streets Montclair event.
Sponsored by a partnership between Bike&Walk Montclair, the Montclair Center BID, the Montclair Police Dept. Traffic Bureau, and Montclair Township, the traffic-free event was enjoyed by thousands of people who went out to support the community, enjoy the gorgeous weather, and have fun.
Norma Tassey, Executive Director of Bike&Walk Montclair, is very pleased with how it turned out and gives a big shout out to Liz Brady and Martel Catalano, the lead team members from Bike&Walk Montclair, for making the event a success.
“I think families truly enjoyed the bike rodeo where kids rode an obstacle course to increase their riding skills. The demo classes by the Park Street Y were awesome with little kids and adults participating in different styles of exercise. The bands at both Crane Park and the Center Stage entertained the crowds and The Girl Noticed street art project was also a great compliment to this event,” says Tassey.
Luther Flurry, Montclair Center BID’s Executive Director, says, “We had amazing weather and the streets were filled with happy families.”
