PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — The city of Providence is holding the last of three "Cyclovia" events, where a stretch of road is shut down to car traffic so it can be used by cyclists, pedestrians and others.

The year's final Cyclovia is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. The stretch of Hope Street between Lippitt Park and Rochambeau Avenue will be closed to accommodate various activities. Mayor Angel Taveras is scheduled to attend at 3:15 p.m.

The event will feature bike workshops, spin classes, an inflatable obstacle course, live music, food trucks and a dog fashion show.

Cyclovia is an international phenomenon believed to have begun in Colombia that has spread to U.S. cities including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Providence held its first Cyclovia in 2012.
