Participation 2007

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Le festival de Loire d'Orléans 2007 se déroulera du 19 au 23 septembre 2007.
Lancé en 2003 et organisé tous les deux ans en début d'automne, le Festival de Loire célèbre la beauté du fleuve royal et la tradition batelière d'antan.
Pendant ces cinqs jours, Orléans sera capitale de la marine fluviale avec notamment un rassemblement de 220 bateaux fluviaux traditionnels.
Cette année, le Festival de Loire s'étendra sur 1,5 kms du quai Châtelet (rue Neuve Saint Aignan) au quai Cypierre (rue des charretiers) route nationale 152. Ainsi, il a été décidé que la circulation sera déviée et aucun véhicule ne pourra emprunter en journée les quais du pont Thinat au pont Joffre. Cette zone sera réservée aux piétons et cyclistes.
