Living Streets Alliance is pleased to announce that on Sunday, October 29th from 10am to 3pm, Cyclovia Tucson will take place on a new route along South 12th Avenue from West 39th Street to Mission Manor Park. This 3.75-mile long route is home to dozens of locally owned small businesses featuring some of Tucson’s best Mexican food, plus scores of schools, community centers, places of worship, parks and neighborhoods. Dozens of free activities will line the route, concentrated around 5 activity hubs, and local restaurants will welcome guests with expanded outdoor seating for the day.
Community members, business owners, and representatives from South 12th Avenue’s many schools and organizations have been hard at work for months planning an event that will showcase the unique aspects of the area. A youth Mariachi showcase will take place outside Pueblo High School, there are all-class reunions for Sunnyside High School and Pueblo High alumni taking place at different locations along the route, live music by Jimmy Carr and The Awkward Moments , Santa Pachita and Escuelita Musical will be featured outside of El Guero Canelo Restaurante Mexicano, and BK Carne Asada & Hot Dogswill host the high-flying zip line and rock climbing wall. The South 12th Avenue route will more than ever have something to offer everyone.
Living Streets Alliance (LSA) is the non-profit organization responsible for organizing two Cyclovia Tucson events in different parts of the city each year. To absorb the costs of the increasingly popular event, which attracted over 32,000 people to the April 2017 event, LSA is hosting an online fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $12,000 by October 20th. Contributions will be used to help cover the costs of producing the October 29th event, including: barricades, safety and police personnel, special-event insurance, activity coordination costs, equipment rental, and pre-event notification and outreach in adjacent neighborhoods. Donations to the Living Streets Alliance spring fundraiser can be made online at cycloviatucson.org and are tax deductible.
