You'll soon have another chance to walk, bike, and play in the streets of Philadelphia, without worrying about traffic.

Officials just announced the date for the next Free Streets Day.

Seven miles of the city will be closed to cars for several hours on Saturday, October, 28th.

The route is different this year, and will be filled with family-friendly activities from 3rd and Chestnut in the Historic District, up to 5th and Indiana in North Philadelphia.

Office of transportation and infrastructure systems Charlotte Castle says this will bring communities together.

"We're creating a safe passageway for people of all ages, on foot and bike, to cross over what usually disconnects neighborhoods which is 676."
