Lincoln Park community invited to 'Meet on the Street'
Third Street between 24th and 27th Avenue West will be closed to automobile traffic and opened up for all people to bike, dance, climb, bounce, and groove together as a community during Lincoln Park's "Meet on the Street with Music in Lincoln Park" event on Sunday, July 17, from 2 to 5 p.m. There will be free food grilled and served by the Duluth Police Department. This event is free and open to the community.
"We want to bring our neighbors together so they can see what our community has to offer. Lincoln Park is a beautiful area, and it is important to build our community," said Missy Meyer, event coordinator with Lincoln Park Children and Families Collaborative.
Activities will include a climbing wall, bike rodeo, bounce house, music, food,
Zumba, games, arts and crafts activities, voter registration and much more. Music will be provided by Robi Meyerson, Mark Levings, Solomon Witherspoon and Jermaine Smooth.
