On June 8 & 9th, 2019, Complete Streets for Prince Rupert participated in Prince Rupert’s Seafest.
On Saturday, we joined the gang from Chucky’s Cycle Shop and rode our bikes in the parade and on Sunday our CS4PR booth was up by the bandstand at the Rotary Waterfront Park.
After focusing on the intersection between Complete Streets, safety and public health at our last two public booths (here and here), we decided to talk about the economic benefits had by communities when streets have been redesigned to be accessible by people of all ages, abilities and modes of travel. We handed out over 100 cards and had fun engaging passersby with these trivia questions. Everyone who tried a trivia question was welcome to enter a raffle to win one of two used youth-sized bicycles. The bicycles were donated to CS4PR and were tuned up by Chucky’s Cycle Shop.
Wyatt was a lucky winner of one of the bikes. Happily, the bicycle fit perfectly and he was thrilled.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and especially to the fantastic Seafest volunteers!
