'Oaklavia' is a concept that typically originated in Bogotá, Columbia with a concept called 'Ciclovía.' The celebration involves temporarily closing down streets to automobiles so that pedestrians and cyclists can enjoy a car-free party.

On June 27 in Oakland, California, 'Oaklavia' closed down 2 miles of streets so that the community could take part in fun activities including sports, dancing and music. Hopefully 'Oaklavia' will be the first of many for Oakland! Stats for Car-Free Street Parties Trending: Older & Chilly
