Spokane Summer Parkways Event

I was out of town last week so wasn't able to take part in the second Spokane Summer Parkways event of this year, but Ryan and Anna in our office held down the fort and attended the event to talk to participants about Horizon 2040, the Metropolitan Transportation Plan we are in the process of developing.

Ryan said it was a great event, with lots of people taking advantage of the closed roads to bike, skate, skateboard and do other events, and he said there were lots of vendors and fun activities. He said the SRTC table was near the face painting, and while he was tempted to have his face painted, he managed to resist the temptation.

These are a couple pictures he took. I'm loving Mountain Gear's giant Jenga game and am trying to come up wtih some kind of visual transportation game we could play at future events. Any ideas?
