Water Street was transformed in Lancaster, PA, on Sunday, May 21, 2017. It was Open Streets Lancaster! There was food, music, and plenty of local businesses sharing activities and information about their services. Most of the organizations and businesses there featured activities that got people active and moving.
First, The Circus School of Lancaster was there. They had hoops, acro-yoga, and Krystal Younglove the stilt walker. She’s the one above there in the top photo.
I hung out with the the circus school members for a little while and hooped. People seemed very receptive to their concept, which is awesome!
As for music, Nick DiSanto was nearby, playing his one man band apparatus and providing a lot of joy. He was also fun to hoop to as he played.
I moved along Water Street looking for something to drink, and hear DJ Freez playing some great tune for some break dancers, BUT…. I found Rachel from Studio Spin and her station. I hooped with them for a bit, too. She had poles set up and another studio member was there introducing people to pole and POUND.
Overall, Open Streets Lancaster is a fun way for people to get out, get to know their neighbors, and learn about activities and businesses available in the area. Go next year!
