very September, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln takes health and wellness resources into the community and adds food, fitness and fun with Streets Alive! our free city-wide outdoor movement festival. This year it will be hosted by the Belmont Neighborhood, on September 10, from 1-5 PM. Streets Alive! is a family, child, pet, and wheelchair friendly event that promotes good nutrition and active living, encouraging people to get out and get moving. Garden produce and food trucks with tasty, fresh choices show visitors the joy of eating healthy. Streets Alive! is a traffic-free event with two miles of city streets cordoned off for fun & learning. The streets are lined with over 100 exhibitors from non-profit organizations who provide free resources and screenings to festival goers. All along the route there are joinin fitness and sports activities to encourage people to walk, run, stroll, propel a wheelchair, bike or skate their way through the festival and participate in active outdoor fun.
