CicLAvia’s final car-free open streets festival of the year is set for Sunday, with hubs along the 5.75-mile “Heart of Los Angeles” route showcasing the Chinatown, Boyle Heights, downtown and MacArthur Park neighborhoods.

The event, which will run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., allows pedestrians and people on other non-motorized forms of transportation to use streets typically reserved for cars.

Hubs on the route are:

— Mariachi Plaza, in Boyle Heights, which will feature a farmers market, live music, a Libros Schmibros bookstore and a vintage board games area;

— Chinatown, where there will be live music, a beer garden, food trucks, and a playground with games like ping-pong, and jump rope;

— Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles, which will offer demonstrations of Metro’s bike-share program, an art bike project, a paper flower workshop by Self Help Graphics & Art and a photo booth; and

— MacArthur Park, which features a mobile mural and a bike safety workshop with a free helmet giveaway.
