Streets near San José’s Children’s Museum to close Wednesday
Some 100 police officers will close streets and regulate traffic near the Children’s Museum, north of San José, Wednesday afternoon and into the evening, to provide a route for participants in annual holiday festivities at the museum.
Calle 4, which heads south from the museum, will be completely closed to automobile traffic and will become what authorities call the “safe route” for people attending the event.
Seven blocks of this street will be closed to traffic and are set to host various activities starting at 2 p.m.
The official lighting of approximately 4,000 Christmas lights, concerts and other events are scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
