Last Sunday the City of Garden Grove hosted their first Re:Imagine Garden Grove Open Streets event. Three miles of main streets in the downtown area of Garden Grove were closed to cars, leaving them open for the community to ride bikes and skateboards, walk and even rollerblade. There was live music, food, crafts, and all kinds of activities for people to enjoy.
Sometimes events like these don’t end up being as cool as the organizers describe in the weeks leading up to it. However, this one lived up to the hype. Everywhere I looked there were smiling faces thoroughly enjoying the day. I was working as part of Channel 3’s third camera unit covering the event, so I didn’t get the opportunity to participate as a community member. I’m not sorry though; it was a fun event to work!
