Active Transportation Parade was a huge success!
Posted July 18, 2014
|Wike Cargo Bike–looks great!|
|Mayor Farbridge came out to enjoy the fun.|
|A lucky winner of best costume!|
Soon after, everything changed. Families with small children, young adults, men and women started coming in droves. Everyone wanted to participate in this fun event. More than 50 people came to enjoy the fun.
|Councillor June Hofland won best hat award!|
It helped that the event was advertised throughout The Junction Neighbourhood and 47 Meadowview Community Potluck . 47 Meadowview has been doing weekly Wednesday Potlucks for the second summer in a row. Part of the street is blocked to traffic so that families can mill about freely on the street for four glorious hours between 4 and 8 pm.
|Another costume winner!
Well, these families who participate in the potlucks as well as others from the neighbourhood were in the mood for a fun event. Many came dressed in costume, and unexpectedly, we had sustainable bicycle-that-looks-like-a-car from SustainableJoes.com appear.
Bryan McPherson provided the music, and everyone weaved in and out of the streets of the Junction neighbourhood. Some of the neighbours came out and waved. Cars that drove by heeded the very large crowd of over 50 participants.
Can’t wait to do this again next year!
