LEXINGTON Ky. (FOX 56) – Playing in the middle of the road is often a dangerous thing to do. Saturday, a unique event gave citizens the chance to do that safely.

Lexington’s first-ever “StreetFest” celebrated warm weather and shared space. Oliver Lewis Way was blocked off to traffic, so everyone was able to enjoy the multiple activities. It was hosted by the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The event featured food trucks, inflatables, and booths set up by multiple community organizations, one being Lexington Parks and Recreation.

“I thought it was really cool. Credit goes to our team at environmental quality live green Lexington. They’re always thinking of outside-the-box ideas. They work with us in parks and we’re always happy to support, set up booths. They set up booths at our events, so it’s very great collaboration. I loved it when they threw out the idea,” said Paul Hooper with Lexington Parks and Recreation.
