Pedestrian Sunday Kensington May Have A Few Cars, Still Fun!

Pedestrian Sunday Bagpipes on Wheels

The G20 may mean that they didn’t get a permit to close Augusta, but that doesn’t mean this Sunday in Kensington will be a total bust:

Hey P.S. Kensington fans,

As you may have heard, the street closure permit has been cancelled for our June 27th Pedestrian Sunday. This means that cars will be allowed into the market, however, there will still be a festive atmosphere that day… music, dance, food and fun are no strangers to the streets of Kensington and a bunch of world leaders meeting in a fortified downtown core can’t stop us from having a good time.

Merchants, residents and anyone who is so inclined, feel free to take a parking spot and do what you will – don’t forget to feed the meter! There’s no law against selling street food if you are already a food vendor and follow board of health guidelines. Musicians welcome, take care not to block traffic or create dangerous situations for pedestrians. Creative interventions with urban space are part of everyday life in the market and Sunday will be no exception.

See you in the streets!
