Sunday Streets HTX is a program in Houston, Texas where streets in densely parts of the city are closed to automobile traffic on Sunday afternoon while bikers and pedestrians are invited to roam.  This past Sunday Westheimer was reserved for bikes and pedestrians.  It is in the center of the inked, hipster, gay and alternative community.  Bars and restaurants were packed, and a number of pop-up food stands were in business.  I treated myself to a tasty breakfast taco.

  1. Interesting…do the closed streets bring more people? We close our streets to traffic once a year for a special event but our downtown is small and it seems to have lost its appeal to many.

    • This is a roving closing. It is a different location each month. The restaurants did a lot more business than on a usual Sunday afternoon, IMO.

  6. That sounds like a Good festival! At first I had thought that by Bikes You meant Motor bikes. And, seeing the Bearded, Black brother, had thought, if they are becoming ‘Bikers,’ things are Improving indeed! Hope that happens sometime.
