Sunday was a glorious day by all accounts. The weather was sublime and the streets were full of everything we love about Portland. It couldn’t have been more perfect for the first Sunday Parkways event of the season.
And guess what, the City of Portland says a record 28,000 people turned out! (Keep in mind that’s a record only for the southeast Portland event. As far as we know, the 2011 north Portland event with over 31,000 people is the most ever.)
It was the first of five events this summer. The next one is June 25th.
Here are a few more images of the action thanks to photographer Kevin Koch…
It’s clear that the demand for carfree streets has outstripped the supply! Hopefully someday soon we’ll have these every summer weekend.
