'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!


Any type of product that promotes a pollution free and eco-friendly environment consumers are drawn to because more people are more aware of their environment and the dangers than they ever were before. Promoting the use of non-automobiles is a fantastic way to appeal to an eco-friendly audience.
