"Streets Alive!" scavenger hunt

Family members participate in a scavenger hunt at a past “Streets Alive!” event. This year’s event will be online Sunday, Oct. 4.




Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln and “Streets Alive!”, the free annual outdoor health, wellness and fitness festival the partnership organizes every year, are both celebrating 10 years of improving community health in 2020.

“Streets Alive!” is called a mobile festival because it typically moves to a new neighborhood setting every two years. But this year, to keep everybody active and safe, “Streets Alive!” has moved online. The online festival will stream interactive events for all ages on a special website that premiers on the day of the event. The link to the event will be accessible from healthylincoln.org.

Visitors to “Streets Alive! Online” will find:

The “Streets Alive! Online” home page, which will stream interactive fun from 2-4:30 p.m. If you miss a class or presentation, you’ll be able to replay it afterward. Find something for all ages including:

• Join-in fitness classes for adults, kids and seniors;

• Learn-along sports demonstrations from local pros;

• Fall and winter garden care tips;

• Cooking classes that showcase tasty and healthy recipes; and

• Community health and safety information.

Scavenger Bingo – To encourage “Streets Alive! Online” visitors to get outdoors, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln is launching week-long games of Scavenger Bingo for all ages from Oct. 4-10. Thanks to the Lincoln Bike Kitchen, players will have a chance to win one of seven bicycles, along with a helmet and bike lock, when they post a bingo on social media using the hashtag #StreetsAliveOnline. Bingo cards can be downloaded from the Scavenger Bingo web page starting the day of the event. Players can also track their miles at LiveWellChallenge.com in the “2020 Streets Alive” group for a chance to win a $500 mini grant for their neighborhood.
