Last Nov 2nd, the streets became Santa Barbara’s longest public park for the day as over 2.5 miles of Cabrillo Blvd and the Funk Zone transformed into a celebration of people-power to promote better health, flexibility and FUN! Thousands of participants enjoyed the streets as they usually can’t: without cars, fumes or traffic, and the overwhelming response was “We want more!” Well you’re getting more! More biking, skateboarding, walking, strolling, moving & doing…traffic free! SB Open Streets returns for a second year this Fall to once again bring our community together…and our streets alive. ¡Calles Vivas!
