Following up on CoolDMZ’s post, Cars on K Street?, it appears cars will return to K Street tomorrow (Saturday, November 12) for the first time in 42 years.
Mayor Kevin Johnson believes allowing vehicles back on K Street will help businesses that have fallen on hard times. Johnson will be kicking off the celebration at 4 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of 12th and K streets. There will be breakdancers, performers, live music, and a classic car parade led by the mayor.
