Today saw lower Queen St transformed from a road into a playground for the Playing in the Streets event so I popped down to have a look, there were plenty of people around but it definitely didn’t feel crowded. Here are some photos (sorry they won’t be as good as Patrick’s)
There were also some demonstrations like this gymnastics one.
While sports where the main theme of the day there were a few other activities for those who wanted to show their creative side and there will definitely be some interesting marks left on the street.
I think it is fair to say that the majority of the events were aimed at kids, not that it is a bad thing. If there was one thing I would like to see it would be it made into more of a carnival atmosphere with more music, activities etc, but at least its a start. Hopefully we start to see more events happening and these two signs become a more regular sight in the city.
