Once a vehicular road, now a boardwalk – over the past three weeks, crews have razed some of the old road markings on John F. Kennedy Drive to better reflect the new use of the roadway, a residential recreation space .

In an effort to foster community connection and happiness, next week the San Francisco Department of Recreation and Parks will launch its Promenade Play Days program, a series of free arts and performance events appearing on the stretch of JFK deemed car-free by city supervisors in April. .

“We want to make sure that when people arrive, they’re greeted with a vibrant and welcoming boardwalk,” Recreation and Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg said in a statement. “We are experimenting with temporary installations involving art, food, social seating and interactive elements to see what works best and elicits positive feedback from park users. The goal is to create the kind of vibrant public space that enhances lives and strengthens communities.

In late September, Illuminate, a San Francisco-based nonprofit, will fill the promenade with music and art, installing two public pianos on either side of the pavement, adding nostalgic heads of Doggie Diner – the mascot of the beloved and now closed Bay Area restaurant chain. — and head offices.

“San Francisco’s cultural re-emergence doesn’t start anywhere; it starts everywhere at once,” Illuminate founder and visionary leader Ben Davis said in a statement. “The cultural fabric that our region’s creative community weaves along the JFK Parkway is designed to reveal the promise and potential of the new walkway as a place of safety, joy, diversity and fun for residents and visitors to San Francisco.”

Paint the Void will also invite local artists to paint colorful murals along the route. Artist Josue Rojas said he was excited to work on this project, as he has been painting murals in the Mission neighborhood for over 25 years.

“As a San Franciscan, I’m so excited to help bring renewed use to Golden Gate Park. I myself frequent JFK Promenade and often cycle from the Mission to the beach. I’m so excited to be a part of the Golden Mile Project,” Rojas said.

And in the near future, Rec and Park also plans to bring games like ping pong and cornhole, a rock climbing wall, a mobile public library, food trucks, and a beer and wine garden to the hotel. space. A Halloween event and Christmas tree lighting celebration are also in the works.

Welcome to the weekend! Denver is hosting a slew of events this weekend, including some for Oktoberfest, but if you’re looking for something closer to the neighborhood, we’ve got you covered.

The Montbello district organizes its annual meeting Montbello Alive! an eventwhich celebrates the rich history, diversity and resilience of Denver’s northeast neighborhood.

Celebrating its seventh year on Saturday, people can head to Parkfield Lake Park & ​​Amphitheater at the Montbello Recreation Center located at 15555 E. 53rd Ave.

Starting at 4 p.m., there will be over 50 vendors and resource booths, as well as a live performance by the Pink Hawks, a local Afrobeat and Latin band. People are encouraged to visit each booth to enter a raffle that includes televisions and Xbox gaming systems.

At night there will be a group bike ride around the Montbello Five Mile Loop. People can come to the event early to decorate their bikes with neon lights and they can go through security checks.

To close out the events, residents will be greeted by minions – Gru’s minions to be exact. There will be a screening of “Minions: The Rise of Gru” on a large outdoor cinema screen.

The event is organized by the Montbello Organizing Committee, along with Struggle of Love Foundation, Montbello 2020 and Families Against Violent Acts. According to the MOC, about 56% of Montbello residents live below Denver’s median income of $60,000. But the organizations involved in the event have helped the neighborhood in its fight for food justice, affordable housing and better transportation. The ultimate goal is to create community wealth to help Montbello residents continue to thrive.

Before heading to Montbello, people can head east to Denver for the 10th Annual HarvestShare event hosted by East5ide Unified|Unido. HarvestShare supports six parks, a farm, a school, and approximately 20 streets across Five Points, Whitter, Clayton, Cole, and Skyland from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event started in 2013 as a way for farmers and urban gardeners to bring their extra harvest to the community. The goal is also to promote healthy eating and active living among residents.

In each park, participants will find a non-profit community organization including, Make a chess movean organization that teaches young people life-changing, life-saving decision-making through the game of chess, and GRASP (Gang Rescue and Support Project)that works on gang intervention.

There will be a free percussion workshop organized by the Moyo Nguvu Arts Cultural Center and a basketball competition with a cash prize.

When Denver evictions surged in June, 55 of them, the highest number, occurred in 80,205. The organization is working to educate neighborhoods about the broad changes, while continuing to give residents a sense of community.

Since opening just over three years ago, the Lafayette County Multi-Purpose Arena has become one of the busiest event spaces in the county.

The arena has hosted children’s camps, cooking competitions, gardening classes, craft shows, health fairs and job fairs, barrel racing, horseback riding lessons and even world-class professional rodeo events.

“Over the past three years, the arena has become a great place to gather, learn and have a good time,” said Wayne Andrews, director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, which manages the arena.

The arena hosts events that attract a wide range of audiences. It has served as a space for circus productions and is now home to the Velvet Ditch Steak Cook-Off, which is a qualifier for the World Food Championship. And it recently won grants from the Mississippi Arts Commission, South Arts and Visit Mississippi to host a community concert series.

On the evening of the free ride, members of the community are invited to use the indoor arena from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for $5 per horse. Photo provided.

“Because of the size of the facility, we attract national touring productions,” Andrews said. “We recently partnered with Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association event producer JC Kitaif Pro Rodeos, based in Mississippi, and will be hosting a televised professional rodeo contest annually in the arena.”

The Lafayette County Multi-Purpose Arena is comprised of two meeting rooms, a demonstration kitchen, a large indoor agricultural arena with bleachers, and a covered outdoor practice area.

It also houses Lafayette County Office of the Mississippi State University Extension Service.

This office offers educational programs such as 4-H youth training and master gardener programs, business and community resource development, and resources for farmers and businesses.

Additionally, this arena regularly hosts open ride nights.

During a free ride evening, members of the community are invited to use the indoor arena from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for $5 per horse. Community members can also request a private ride in which they can bring up to three horses for $50.

The Lafayette County Multi-Purpose Arena is available for public and private events.

For more information on upcoming events or to submit a usage request, visit website.

“We’re always interested in bringing new classes and events to the arena,” Andrews said. “We invite residents to call us to find out more about the arena and the facilities we have available.”

This weekend, a few organizations are hosting different events with the goal of increasing health equity in Minneapolis.

Along West Broadway Avenue on the north side of Minneapolis will be a block party called Live your healthy life. The festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is free and aims to educate residents of the historically black neighborhood about the area’s health resources.

What started out as wanting to create an event with healthy food options for the West Broadway area grew into an event to focus on health equity and increase education and access around from her.

In 2019, Teto Wilson, one of the event organizers, owner of Wilson’s Image Barbershop & Stylists at 2126 West Broadway Ave., noticed that there were no healthy meals available in the area.

The article continues after the ad

“If you wanted to get a healthier meal, you really had to get out of north Minneapolis,” Wilson said.

Wilson often found himself traveling to other cities, not only for food, but also for community events. He also wanted those forms of entertainment and hard-hitting messages on the North Side, so he turned hope into action.

There will be a variety of Black-owned vendors, art, activities and music, in addition to community conversations, food science demonstrations, healthcare screenings, vaccinations and mental health consultations. . Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity will also be present, as Wilson recognizes that housing security is an important part of a person’s overall health.

“We want anyone with health issues to be able to benefit from health resources,” Wilson said. “We’re trying to get people to empower themselves, to develop relationships with health care systems that haven’t always been welcoming and haven’t done what they should be doing to serve us. We try to build a bridge between the community and the health care systems where we can both cross paths and meet each other.

Black Americans are more likely than their white counterparts to die at an early age from almost any health condition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nearly 84% of north Minneapolis is black and brown, with the highest concentration of black-owned businesses in the Northside between Penn and Logan Avenues on West Broadway Avenue.

The event will be hosted by local comedian Bruce Leroy and will feature musical guests Lewie Blaze, BdotCroc, Jamela Pettiford, the International Reggae All-Stars and DJ Mo Phatt.

A launch event for Health in its shade, a platform that connects black women and women of color to culturally sensitive healthcare providers, evidence-based health content and community support, also takes place Saturday, at the Brooklyn Center . The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Heritage Center, 6155 Earle Brown Dr.

Representatives of be the match will participate in the event with the goal of expanding its presence in underrepresented communities to improve the diversity of the National Blood Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Registry. Be The Match operates a marrow donation program that connects healthy adult donors with patients suffering from blood cancers and other blood diseases for the purpose of stem cell transplantation.

There is a significant disparity in match results because there are not enough diverse members in the registry, said Erica Jensen, senior vice president of member engagement, enrollment and experience. at Be The Match.

The article continues after the ad

Black patients have only a 29% chance of finding a matched donor in the registry, compared to 79% for white patients. In the United States, there are 9 million people on the registry.

Mikayla Draughon, a teenager from Minnesota who was diagnosed with sickle cell disease at birth, is currently awaiting a game. It’s been nearly two years since her doctors recommended she undergo a bone marrow transplant, and she still hasn’t found a compatible partner.

“If it’s so bad that we need a bone marrow transplant, how are we going to keep waiting all these years?” Mikayla’s mother, Demitrea Kelley, said.

The closest match she found was an 80% match, which didn’t sound promising, her mother said. Be The Match is trying to introduce more people to the registry and encourage people to donate, especially people of color.

“We can’t just sit here and say, ‘Oh, it doesn’t affect me, so it doesn’t matter,'” Kelley said. “We are a community. We should be united with each other.

When asked what might be causing the lack of ethnic diversity in the registry, Jensen pointed to US history and representation in health care staffing.

“There are a lot of historical and current issues of mistrust within the health care systems in the United States and that’s part of the reason you’re talking to people about joining a registry, having a voluntary medical procedure and to be able to store and have your walls of information going up because of the things that have happened in this country and the treatment of black and brown bodies,” Jensen said.

For Kelley, Saturday’s Hue event is about more than finding a one-person match.

“I’m not just advocating for Mikayla. We stand up for anyone facing the same or similar issue,” Kelley said. “We help all minority patients or minority clients who need blood. It is important for everyone. »
