Open Streets Columbus, 12-4pm
Imagine your very own urban playground. That’s Open Streets Columbus,  happening September 13th in downtown Columbus from 12-4 pm. Open Streets closes 0.6 miles of Fourth St.(between Main St. and Broad St.) opening the roads up for walking, biking, rollerskating badminton, extra-large Jenga and Twister, a rock climbing wall, roller skating, yoga, and more. Connecting it all: sharing six-word stories about what “open Columbus” means to you.

Independent’s Day Festival, All Day
For two days we’ll be challenging some of Columbus’ most creative folks to share six words on Columbus at our interactive installation at ID 15. Throughout the festival, all are invited to pin their Six-Word story onto a six-word line to be seen by all who pass by. The best six-worders will be featured in our new Six in the City: Columbus T-shirt.
