Open Streets ICT is September 22nd, 2019 From 12-5pm!
Join us this fall for a FREE community-building event along the iconic Douglas Avenue in Wichita, KS for a full day of biking, fun physical activities, music, dancing, yoga, and much more! All Wichitan’s are invited to get active, socialize, and to stop at the local Douglas Avenue businesses, restaurants, street vendors, and the five major activity hubs situated every mile along the four-mile stretch from College Hill to Delano District.
KAKE is partnering with First United Methodist Church to offer pet blessings next to the KAKE tent in Kennedy Plaza in front of Century II. Bring your pet and have them blessed and receive a charm to put on their collar. We are also partnering with Bicycle Exchange where they will be setting up in front of their store front in Delano to offer test rides and they will have an electric assist bicycle ready for test ride.
Beyond attending the event there are many ways to get involved in Open Streets ICT. Open Streets ICT is currently seeking vendors to fill the space along Douglas. They are also in search of volunteers to be barricade directors, route marshals and to assist with the information tent.
Thank you to these sponsors: Wichita Parks and Recreation, KAKE-TV, City of Wichita- Government, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, Fidelity Bank, Visual Fusion, Friends University, Health ICT, Cybertron It, KMUW, Aetna, Power 93.5, Simpson Construction.
