Post Your Photos: Streets for People in Fairfax

Hundreds filled downtown Fairfax on Bolinas Road Sunday afternoon during the Streets for People event. Check out our pictures of the event.


Downtown Fairfax was filled with hundreds of people for Sunday's , where Bolinas Road was closed between Broadway and Elsie. 

While some were concerned the family-friendly event could cause a traffic headache with the closure of one of the town's main thoroughfares, traffic didn't seem to get backed up during Streets for People. Did you get stuck in traffic? Tell us below in comments.

  • Café tables in the street
  • Roco dance will lead dance classes in the street

I have to say that I stand corrected regarding my earlier expressed concerns.This was a fun event. I especially enjoyed doing zumba in the street and listening to the kids playing music. OK, I'm gonna say it...Hana Ho!

I loved how there was something at the event for everyone, even small children. People of all ages were having a wonderful time. It was fun to see the businesses do sidewalk sales and get into the spirit of event.
