OPEN STREETS UPTOWN WATERLOO  
Uptown Waterloo
Open Streets is a global initiative inspired by the Central and South Americas “Ciclovias” and Seattle’s “Car Free Sundays.” Open Streets advance the livable cities movement by temporarily closing streets to automobile traffic for walking, dancing, playing and socializing. Enjoy live music, impromptu parks, art, activities, community booths, businesses and eateries.
Open Streets Uptown Waterloo is a publically led, publically funded initiative.
Centre In The Square will have a booth set up at this event. Make sure you come by and say hello.
