Favorite Pixs from Philly Free Streets Saturday

Philadelphia held the third edition of Philly Free Streets on Saturday, August 11, 2018 where they shut down a 4 mile stretch of North Broad Street from City Hall to Erie Streets from 8am to 1pm , to show off what is dubbed the longest street in an urban setting.

During Philly Free Streets people walked, biked and played along the 8 mile route (4 miles in each direction)

which was lined with programing and historic sites, including a live jazz band,


mural art panting (they say with one rain storm it will wash away, I wonder if it’s there today), roller skating

and even a pop up beach at Master Street where kids played in the sand. Philly Free Streets was inspired by the 2015 Papal visit where the City was shut down for security reasons, and people took to the streets to enjoy the sites from a vantage point they had not experienced before – North Beach

I walked part of the way with Hadas Kuznits, here with her family who we ran into

And then ran into Kevin Lessard and Michael Newmuis from Visit Philly, spending the rest of the afternoon with them with Matthew Wolf, GM The Met Philadelphia which is scheduled to open later this year.

We randomly ran into Malcolm Kenyatta at a corner where his campaign sign was posted.
