Cigna Sunday Streets Kicks Off on Washington Ave.
The fall series of Cigna Sunday Streets returns this Sunday, October 1, 2017. Cigna Sunday Streets, a project of the Mayor's Office of Special Events and the Health and Human Services Department, provides a family-friendly opportunity to be physically active. For four hours one Sunday a month during the fall months, selected Houston streets are closed to motorized traffic, allowing Houstonians to cycle, walk, run, dance, and socialize in the street. Stores and restaurants along the routes will be open for business.
Cigna Sunday Streets will be in the following neighborhoods:
- October 1: Washington Avenue -- Heights Blvd. to Westcott
- November 5: Gulfton (Bellaire Blvd.) -- Hillcroft to Chimney Rock
- December 3: Energy Corridor -- Briar Forest to Enclave Pkwy
All events during the fall season will take place from 12 - 4pm. Cigna Sunday Streets is modeled after other events around the world. The concept originated 30 years ago in Bogota, Colombia. U.S. cities with similar events include San Francisco, Portland, St. Louis, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Minneapolis.
