Thirteen blocks of downtown Chicago were closed and turned into an urban playground on Saturday.

Families could take part in rock climbing and other playground games throughout the day.

It's the Open Streets event in the Loop.

The event is put on by the Chicago Loop Alliance to bring together communities and businesses.

Next Sunday the event moves to the Wicker Park neighborhood.
