National Night Out Celebration – August 1!

This year, the College Hill Neighborhood is celebrating National Night Out in a big way and everyone’s invited!  Join us on Tuesday, August 1, from 5 to 9pm on and enjoy Fun for the Whole Family!

Activities:

  • Play Corn-hole
  • Cool off in the Splash Pool
  • Make a Hula-Hoop
  • Pedal the Bike-Blender
  • Paint a Street Mural
  • Paint an Art Crosswalk

Food:

  • Ice Cream Truck
  • Lemonade Stand
  • Pizza
  • Bandito Burrito (3 blocks south)

Displays:

  • Greensboro Transportation Department
  • Greensboro Water Resources Department
  • Greensboro Parks & Recreation EcoBus
  • LimeBike Demos

We’ll have Mendenhall Street, between Carr Street and Rankin Place closed to motor vehicles so that everyone from 8 to 80+ can stroll, chat, dance, create, play, splash, and pedal in safety and comfort!  Bring a lawn chair!

Leave the car at home . . . walk or ride your bike, instead!

In addition to all the great programming listed above, the neighborhood character of Mendenhall Street will be restored through a variety of temporary installations aimed at taming traffic, including:

  • A temporary shift of the street centerline (Walker to Morehead)
  • An inviting parklet (near Carr)
  • Temporary curb bulb-outs
  • Temporary refuge islands
  • A temporary roundabout (Walker)
