Fun fills the streets of Lincoln Park

Last Saturday, West Third Street between 24th and 27th avenues was closed to traffic in order to be open to the public. Community members were invited out of their homes to take part in the second annual Meet on the Street.

Last Saturday, West Third Street between 24th and 27th avenues was closed to traffic in order to be open to the public. Community members were invited out of their homes to take part in the second annual Meet on the Street.

"This is such a fun idea," said Katie Farkas, a mother who brought her 2-year-old daughter Jayda and 4-year-old son Sage to the event. "We live over on 28th, so we didn't even have to get into the hot car to come."

That was the idea behind the event planned by over 20 community organizations to promote active living and community building in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Activities included a rock-climbing wall, bounce house, bike rodeo, arts and crafts and food vendors. The Duluth Parks department had a large whiteboard available for community members to add their suggestions for further developments in Lincoln Park.

"I wrote that a water fountain would be a good idea. Something to provide water," said Lincoln Park resident Carol Spanyard. "It would help keep the kids hydrated, which is always a good thing."
