Feet in the Street
It was a perfect autumn day for Feet in the Street this year, the sun was out and the breeze cooled everyone down from all the running around. The rock climbers and cherry pickers probably felt the warmest, since they were closer to the sun. However, it wasn't so bad for the runners, the hikers, or the bikers. Kids got their face painted and parents got their arms tattooed (airbrushed). Passer-bys saw the Farmer's Market and partook in some locally grown veggies, fruits and honey! Visitors learned about bike safety and organic gardening. Feet in the Street had a lot going on this year, if you did not make it out, check back soon for next year's Feet in the Street date.
