Lawton’s Open Streets event is back, and it’s happening April 20th!

This bi-annual event started in June of 2017 and had to take a break due to the covid pandemic, but this month it’s encouraging you to get out, get active, and engage with the community in an effort to live a healthier lifestyle no matter your age!

“Open Streets is an opportunity for us to shut down the streets and remind people what fun it is to play in the streets. One of our goals is to get people active. This is our first time we’re back in person since covid, and there are so many of us who are so excited about this,” said Sandy Foster of Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust.

C Avenue will be shut down from Second Street, all the way to Fifth Street for games, a poker run, cops and kids’ car show, smoothie bikes, vendors, and more.

“We are partnering with a lot of different events that are going on down there. the farmer’s market is going to be one of our partners, and so we’re going to line food trucks along four street. The Oklahoma Blood Institute will be there. we’re going to have a planting activity. we’ve got pots that the kids can plan paint, and then we’re going to take it over to the farmers market and give them a tomato seedling, and the CCMH TSET program is a sponsor for that color run so that is free for any child four to 12,” said Foster.

This event is free! Taking place from nine in the morning until two in the afternoon.
