A street in Lincoln Park was closed off to cars Sunday to allow a little more foot and pedal traffic.

The Lincoln Park Meet on the Street event took over three blocks of Third Street between 24th and 27th Avenues West. People could walk, bike or do anything that didn't have a motor.

The goal was to make the area more pedestrian friendly. Event Coordinator Josh Gorham said it was also about coming together.

"Maybe sometimes we don't always have those opportunities to do that; we don't always know our neighbors,” Gorham said. “This is an opportunity to get out and have that face to face contact and get to know people."

Nonprofits, churches and arts organizations set up activities along the three blocks. They had things like Zumba, minnow racing and bike education.

More than 400 people visited Sunday.
