In September 2015, the City and the 50th & France Business Association held the first “Open Streets on 50th” event, closing streets in the area to focus on non-motorized use of Edina’s streets. Organizers estimate nearly 9,000 people attended the four-hour event. More than 100 businesses, community organizations, service clubs and athletic associations provided food, entertainment, information and more. The mission of Open Streets on 50th is to get outside, get active and to make connections. Organizers are planning the second Open Streets on 50th for Sunday, Sept. 25.
