This Saturday, we will be celebrating community at the Rainier Valley Summer Streets event down in Columbia City.
Bike in the parade:
The day kicks off with the Rainier Valley Heritage Parade, and we welcome you to decorate your bikes with Cascade and then show them off by biking in the grand finale of the Heritage Parade. Meet in the Greater New Bethel Baptist Church, 5279 Rainier Avenue South parking lot between 10:30 a.m and noon. After the parade, Rainier will be opened up to all non-motorized users to enjoy while getting to know the neighborhood.
Play at the Bike Extravaganza hosted by Bike Works:
Bike Works will be hosting their first ever Art Bike Contest will take place at 2 p.m. in front of Bike Works. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate. No rules apply. Entry fee is a suggested donation of $5 and a nonperishable food item which will be used to build Seattle’s Largest Canned Food Pyramid before being donated to the Rainier Valley Food Bank.
Additionally, there will be test rides, information booths and more bike decorating. It is the one time of year you get to play in the street on Rainier Ave. For more information, please visit: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/summer_rainier.htm
