Guess what this weekend is? The first Spokane Summer Parkways event. On Sunday, July 11, three miles of Howard Street will be closed to automobile traffic between Riverfront Park and Corbin Park so that you can bike, walk, skateboard, roller skate, or do whatever else you want that involves ‘active transportation’ on the road.
There will also be physical fitness activities like yoga, Zumba, Hula Hoops, jump rope, hacky sack, and martial arts offered free along the course to encourage a healthy lifestyle for everyone.
The highlight of the event though? I’ll have a table there to promote SRTC’s Transportation Vision Project. Be sure and stop by and talk to me about your ‘vision’ for the future of Spokane’s transportation system. I’ll be the one wearing the shirt that says ‘I heart Vision.’
Spokane Summer Parkways is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Here’s a link to more info on the event.
