Last Saturday, the city of Long Beach hosted the fourth iteration of its popular Beach Streets open streets festival.

Beach Streets returned to its original Uptown route primarily on Atlantic Boulevard. Tens of thousands of participants enjoyed bicycling, walking, skating, running, dancing, and more along four miles of car-free streets.
