Sunday Parkways in NE Portland

Today was the second ‘Sunday Parkways’ event of the season, this time in the Northeast.  They closed off a bunch of streets to cars (excepting local inhabitants) and made a big loop of about 7 miles around the Alberta Arts district.  People can ride either direction.  It was a great sunny day for it!  Lots of people out to enjoy, including plenty of kids.

It’s nice to get the streets clear for a day… and the chalk artists were out in force.

There were bands set up along the way, and more organized activities at several of the parks along the ride.  And there were plenty of impromptu lemonade stands and the like, so I stopped in at one… it’s down in the left corner of this pic  (this shot’s for oakhill193!).

And I’d been meaning to get a shot of this big sign for awhile, so here it is on a bright sunny afternoon:
