Thank you for helping make the 2013 Buffalo Play Streets events a success!

We’re taking play to the streets! Come ride your bike, climb a rock wall and practice some new dance moves. The first Play Streets event is on Sunday, May 5th, from 12pm to 4pm on Manhattan Ave., north of E. Amherst St., behind Bennett High School. People are encouraged to walk and bike to the events and throughout the events, where there are a number of activities to get you moving.

Play Streets features a number of fun activities, including dance workshops, zumba, line-dancing, bike repair workshops, bike rodeos, a climbing wall, sports and games. Information on nutrition, health and wellness will be available. Buffalo Play Streets partner BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York will have their Healthy Zone Cruiser at each event, providing jump ropes and hula hoops for kids to play with and information on healthcare. In addition, Massachusetts Avenue Project’s Growing Green mobile market will be at several Play Streets, providing information on gardening and urban farming, growing seasons, recipes for preparing and cooking various vegetables and selling their fresh, locally-grown produce.
