Spokane Summer Parkways THIS Weekend

Okay, this time I mean it! I messed up and posted last weekend that the second Spokane Summer Parkways event of 2011 was last Sunday. Well, I was rushing things because it actually takes place THIS Sunday, July 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The City will close several miles of roadway to vehicles and open the streets to bikes, pedestrians, skaters, and other human-powered transportation. There will also be vendors and lots of activities to take part in along the route.

The course starts at Whitehouse St. and Dalke Ave., near Ruth Park, then along Dalke Ave. to Howard St./Stevens St. continue on to Rowan Ave. then back to Whitehouse St. to Princeton Ave. onto Stevens St. and then Walton Ave. ending at the Clark Playfield. Here's a map and more info.
