Hundreds of people made their way to downtown Carrboro to enjoy the sunshine and play in the middle of the street this Sunday.
Carrboro hosted its 6th annual Carrboro Open Streets on April 8 to invite residents to interact with the community while staying active.
“It’s basically a way of encouraging the public to come onto the streets and keep cars out and be active and healthy and utilize the streets in a fun way,” Carrboro recreation supervisor Galen Poythress said.
The town closed East and West Weaver Street from noon until 4 p.m. for local groups and businesses to set up stands in the middle of the road.
Carrboro Parks and Recreation, which helped organize the event, asked each stand to offer activities that got people moving. KOTOX Taekwondo gave board-breaking demonstrations, Aidan’s Pizza taught kids how to correctly toss pizza dough and FIT on Main encouraged participants to try a sampling of workout gear, like battle ropes.
