The first Open Streets on State Street shut down seven blocks of State (from Lake to Van Buren) to vehicles on Saturday, opening up the streets to pedestrians, cyclists, and skaters. From 10 AM to 3 PM, there were break-dancing demos, yoga and zumba classes, a dunk tank, bouting by the Windy City Rollers, play areas for kids, a skate park, and activities like foursquare, hula hooping, and relay races. Even the Bucket Boys were out, drumming away. I don’t know if they were part of the official lineup, but they drew a pretty good crowd—as did the event overall. It was a cool, sunny day, and people seemed to be enjoying wandering the streets. More photos after the jump.
