4th Street in Motion Video Replay
2010-05-11 · By Barbara Holbrook
On Sunday, the first 4th Street In Motion Festival had residents moving to the groove all along 4th Street’s popular Retro Row between Cherry and Junipero.
The street—closed to car traffic—had no shortage of wheels on Sunday. Festival attendees traveled the one-block festival on skates, bikes, skateboards, hybrid-electric bicycles, rickshaw, wagon and even a few by foot. The free, family-friendly afternoon was part of the Long Beach Bike Festival, which also took place over the weekend.
In addition to fantastic people-watching, the 4th Street in Motion street fair also featured a long line-up of booths that aimed to get folks moving more including: the ladies of the Long Beach Roller Derby, L.A. Sparks, Skateboard demo from the local documentary On the Grind, fitness bootcamp and yoga classes for the kiddies, live music with dancing and more.
For an overview of the festival, listen to the archive of Swoop’s World Radio who broadcast live from the event and did on-the-spot interviews with local bike enthusiasts like Allison from the Pedal Movement and Long Beach Mobility Coordinator Charles Gandi.
