Pike People Street Update

Last month’s “Hilloween” edition of our Pike People Street pilot program was a big hit – and the fun is set to continue on December 8 with our final pilot of the year! Pike People Street is a new pilot program in which certain sections of Pike Street on Capitol Hill are temporarily closed to vehicles and instead opened to pedestrians and various forms of entertainment (like last month’s trick-or-treaters!)

pikepeople1The most recent Pike People Street event was on October 29 and integrated many of the Capitol Hill “Hilloween” celebration’s festivities: musicians, temporary café seating, inflatable street furniture, and games! Giving pedestrians a bit of extra space to enjoy Halloween went off without a hitch!

The final Pike People Street pilot of the year is scheduled for December 8 from 4 to 10 PM as part of the December Capitol Hill Art Walk festivities! The street will be opened to pedestrians on Pike St between 10th Ave and 11th Ave, and on 11th Ave between Pine St and Pike St. Discover local artists at the Art Walk, kick back and relax, and enjoy Pike Street in a whole new way!
