A "Weekend Walk" street festival will take place on Bell Boulevard this Sunday.

Parts of Bell Boulevard will be closed off to traffic this Sunday for a multi-block party, city and local officials said.

The Bayside Village Business Improvement District (BID) will hold its first ever “Weekend Walk” on September 29 from noon to 5 p.m.

There will be free fitness classes, dance performances, music acts and specials offered by businesses.

The event will be held on two blocks of the main commercial corridor from 39th Avenue to 41st Avenue.

Cars will not be allowed to park or enter from those avenues until 6 p.m.

Bell Boulevard has not been closed off for a community festival in more than 20 years, BID officials said.

A second event, the BID’s second annual “Sidewalk Sale,” will take place from Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29.

Officials said the two events are meant to increase foot traffic on Bell Boulevard and promote the wide variety of businesses on the popular strip.

There are more than 400 businesses and property owners from Northern Boulevard to 35th Avenue, officials said, including long established eateries, beloved bars and a host of stores and professional practices.
