Sunday Streets Draws Thousands to East End Route

Sunday Streets Draws Thousands to East End Route

Crowds flocked to the East End this past Sunday to take part in Sunday Streets HTX, a Go Healthy Houston event celebrating the streets of Houston by opening them for walking, biking, dancing, and other physical activity.

With no cars on the road, over 10,000 community members took advantage of the street closure, which ran east on Navigation Boulevard and then north on York and Hirsch Streets, between Jenson and Clinton.

Sunday Streets Houston was piloted in April, May, and June of 2014. Due to the success of the pilot, Mayor Annise Parker adopted Sunday Streets Houston as an annual initiative, making Sunday Streets a Houston tradition.
