Tens of thousands of people took advantage of a car-free Shattuck Avenue on Sunday at the fourth annual Sunday Streets Berkeley. Cars were banned on the 2-mile stretch from Haste Street to Rose Street, and it was filled instead with musicians, face painters, bubble makers, civic organizations, food booths, yoga classes and more. Berkeleyside contributing photographers Nancy Rubin, Ted Friedman and William Newton visited and shot these photos, which give a taste of the day.
The event was put together by the Downtown Berkeley Association, the North Shattuck Association, Livable Berkeley and East Bay Open Streets.
