Downtown Fort Collins now has a special kind of street and that is worth a special celebration. Linden street has been undergoing quite a renovation and the City of Fort Collins has decided it's time to show off its new use and look as a "convertible street".

The public is invited to check out the new roadway that can become a festival ground for pedestrians only, the new landscape, and several new aesthetic features. This Friday, September 16 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m Linden Street will be filled with live music and balloon animals. There will even be a Linden Street Bingo game and a treasure hunt.

This project also had a goal of linking two popular areas, Old Town Square and the River District.  We got a glimpse of the completed project a few weeks ago and now it's time to celebrate.

The City of Fort Collins said Friday's "event will be the first time Linden Street will be temporarily converted into a pedestrian space, demonstrating how the new Linden can be used for events in the future."

A little traffic heads up, to get ready for the event Linden will be closed to vehicles beginning Friday at 10 a.m. and continuing until Saturday morning.

Just in case you were wondering the project cost $3.5 million. For more information about the Linden Street project, visit
