The free, "Bikeable, Walkable, Livable!" festival is gaining increasing momentum towards its goal of demonstrating widespread support for the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan and the Vitality City Livability Plan.

Mayors of all three Beach Cities are encouraging their citizens to bike, walk, run, rollerblade or skateboard to the fossil free event on 13th Street between Valley Drive and Morningside Drive in Manhattan Beach which will be closed to motor vehicles during the 10:00 am to 2:00 pm festival.

Moving Planet South Bay is designed to offer Beach City residents and fans a chance to experience the benefits and improvements the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan and the Vitality City Livability Plan will bring their communities while offering them tools and resources to personally become more bikeable, walkable and livable.

Partnering with the three Beach Cities and working to organize the event are the South Bay Bicycle Coalition, Healthways Blue Zone| Vitality City, Transition South Bay LA, and the South Bay 350 Climate Action Group.

Metlox Plaza on 13th Street in Manhattan Beach is the setting for a series of free workshops, demonstrations, and presentations including yoga, tai chi, zumba exercise, dancing, youth bike safety, beekeeping, edible gardening, stretching for runners and walkers, gardening aerobics and more.

Over 40 Moving Planet South Bay partner booths will line 13th Street with interactive experiences, workshops, demonstrations, lessons, displays, many prizes and giveaways, and free services including dance lessons, composting lessons, bicycle parking, bike adjustments, bike safety inspections and minor repairs, games and activities for kids, meditation instruction, urban chicken raising tips, nutritional advice and direction, environmental and sustainability information and resources and expert advice on local biking, skating, running and walking in the South Bay.

Also embracing Moving Planet South Bay's support for the Bicycle Master Plan and the Livability Plan is the downtown Downtown Manhattan Beach Professional Association who has created a "Bike/Walk-Friendly Business District" for the event with 29 downtown establishments offering discounts and special incentives for attendees.

"Every business, organization and group participating is donating their time and expertise for the good of the community and because of their enthusiasm for getting the Bicycle Master Plan and Livablity Plan passed," says Joe Galliani, one of the event organizers and a South Bay Bicycle Coalition board member. "People here recognized this is our time to seize the moment and guarantee a better future."

"There are Moving Planet events in 151 countries and in cities all across the USA on September 24, but there is no other that has the unique opportunities our Manhattan Beach festival has," according to Sona Kalapura, the City's Environmental Programs Manager, another organizer of the event. "We have an unprecedented chance to improve our environment and our quality of life by passing these two plans."
