'Reimagine Crowdus' brings the outdoor fun to Deep Ellum

DALLAS -- Live comedy. Outdoor movies. Electronic picnics. Great food. Awesome workouts. All of that and more has come to Deep Ellum for the entire month of September.

"Reimagine Crowdus" is an experiment along, you guessed it, Crowdus Street, to see whether a pedestrian street full of entertainment can make it in the Big D, according to the movement's official website. Observations and feedback will be given to the City after Oct. 1, in hopes that Deep Ellum can make this a permanent thing.

Organizers write online that the long-term goal is to make Deep Ellum more walkable and fun for those visiting and living in the neighborhood, giving it a public space for people to hang out.

"We expect opening a pedestrian street would benefit Deep Ellum by boosting local business and cultivating community relationships," the website states.

Crowdus Street is "a transformative experience full of entertainment and adventure. We’re packing anything you might do in a year into one solid month!"

That means you don't have to wait -- celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, Christmas, and New Year's Eve within a week, sometimes one day, of each other.

The schedule includes live improv comedy from the Dallas Comedy House, City Surf workout classes, a Selena Sing-Along with Alamo Drafthouse, and much, much more, through Oct. 1.
