Open Streets as a concept originated in Bogota, Colombia and has since spread as a global phenomena! The concept is that streets are a public space that can be used and enjoyed by all people, regardless of background or ability. St. Catharines Open Streets was initiated in 2018 as a pilot project and took place again in 2019. St. Paul Street from Queen to Carlisle and James Street from King to St. Paul will be closed for activities. Come on down and check it out between 1-4 pm. This is a ‘free’ fun family event with lots of activities for children. Check out Open Streets St. Catharines.
