“Spring Thing” kicks off street fair season

[Event flyer]

I love street fairs. Besides meeting people and hanging out, closing streets to motorized traffic just makes me happy. This Saturday (10-5pm), the City of Portland, Kaiser, the Concordia Neighborhood and the Fox Chase Business Association, will kick off summer street fair season with The Northeast Spring Thing.

In addition to a ton of great performances (including Capoeira) and live music, the Spring Thing is the official kick-off of the City of Portland’s Northeast Hub Project, which I covered last week. The Transportation Options crew will be on hand to give out free bike helmets for kids, lead a neighborhood family bike trailer ride, and give away free bike maps and other goodies.

It will be a great event to bring the kids, learn about transportation options, and try out different types of trailers if you’re new to riding with the family. I’ll be there too, and I look forward to meeting some of you in the real world.

Be a Hubbian, or just look like one!

I’ll be leading a Try-a-Trailer Ride from the Spring Thing. Leaves NE 30th & Killingsworth at 11:15, but sign up first to reserve a trailer. Bring your own bike and helmets. It’ll be fuuun.
