Evansville street comes alive Sunday afternoon - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Evansville street comes alive with healthy choices

Posted: Updated:

The stretch of Fulton Avenue between Maryland and Diamond is back open after the Evansville Streets Alive event.

The street was closed Sunday afternoon for activities like biking, rollerblading and dancing. Vendors also lined the streets to promote healthy foods and choices.

This is the second year for the event. Organizers say the event is designed to help make the community more physically active.

"That's what's important is instead of sitting in your house and possibly being on a computer or playing with video games, we're out together as a community, meeting each other and having fun on an open streets event," said Gloria Schwartz, the Co-Chair of Healthier Evansville Committee. 

Organizers said they're looking forward to holding the event again next year.
