First 'Sundays on State' event kicks of this weekend

CHICAGO (WLS) -- State Street, that great street, will look a lot different come Sunday.

Traffic will be shut down from Lake to Madison and transform into a pedestrian-friendly space with a whole lot going on.

Michael Edwards and the Chicago Loop Alliance joined ABC7 to talk about the festivities.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on State Street from Lake to Madison streets. Sundays on State will also take place on July 18, July 25 and Aug. 8, 22 and 29.

The street will be closed off for the free block party featuring art, culture, active recreation, food and drink, shopping and local attractions.

Those who register to attend Sundays on State at LoopChicago.com/Sundays will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $1,000 Loop staycation package.
