An eight-block stretch of 300 South in Salt Lake City will be closed on Saturday for Open Streets Salt Lake City. The free event will create room to walk, bike and enjoy public space free from vehicle traffic. It takes place from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., on 300 South from 600 West to 200 East, and is part of a national movement to open selected streets for all to enjoy. Salt Lake City's version will connect a variety of downtown events including the 10th Annual LiveGreen SLC! Festival at Library Square; the Tour de Brewtah at Gallivan Center; and the Utah Archaeology Week Open House at the Rio Grande Depot. Along the Open Streets route, there will be a bicycle rodeo for kids, Zumba, face painting, free inline skate rentals, dance classes, yoga classes, bike polo and lawn games at Pioneer Park.
