"'Switch Open Street Sunday' happens in Halifax on Sunday September 24, 2017, 12pm to 4pm with open street events on Spring Garden Road and Agricola Street, helping to animate Halifax’s city streets and public spaces with activities, events, and entertainment alongside Halcon 2017, Citadel National Park, and HRM’s recreation activities at the Oval. Switch Halifax brings an extra 5000 people to open streets inviting them to switch their cars “off” and switch “on” the street with entertainment, markets, recreation and activities all connected by active transportation paths.
Switch Halifax 2017 takes place in the Spring Garden Area, on Spring Garden Road, from South Park to Queen Street, as well as the North End, on Agricola Street between Charles and Almon Streets. Attendees are invited to park their car for the day and traverse the city by foot, by bike or by bus and experience the many activities available for those who take the extra time and explore Halifax Oval, Citadel Hill, Downtown Halifax and Grand Parade, and the Waterfront on their way between Spring Garden Road and Agricola Street. Switch Halifax showcases what can happen when we think differently about how we use our streets and public spaces, as well as how fun, easy, and fast it can be to traverse the peninsula by bike or on foot."
