The city’s third annual Free Streets event was this weekend, shutting down eight miles of North Broad and allowing Philadelphians to explore their city streets, uninhibited by cars.
And from the Instagram photos, it looks like people made the most of it.
The event, which started at 8 a.m. and lasted until 1 p.m. Saturday, saw both northbound and southbound sides of Broad shut down from JFK to just past Erie Avenue.
It was an opportunity for Philadelphians to run, bike, walk, and enjoy arts activities all along North Broad, all while connecting with their urban environment. Along the way, there were stops for history-based scavenger hunts, murals to admire (and some you could help paint, yourself), and stations for chalk art.
Take a look at how Philadelphians celebrated their city streets last weekend, through 11 of their own Instagram photos:
And of course, the Phillie Phanatic was there, too.
