Chicago kids take back the streets on PlayStreets Day
The city of Chicago designated Thursday as "PlayStreets Day," when 13 separate blocks were cleared for a few hours to create an urban oasis.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The "PlayStreets" program kicked off Friday afternoon at Morrill Elementary in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood.

The program closes off streets to traffic giving kids a chance to play games, play in bounce houses and a whole lot more. PlayStreets events are free for kids and families.

The Chicago Department of Public Health is partnering with 22 groups for the events.

There are 150 events planned throughout the summer in 28 neighborhoods.
