Tell your neighbors, tell your friends! Saturday, August 17 is a Picnic in the Street along Rainier! This free event opens the city's largest public space - its streets - so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop - without having to watch out for cars! Summer Streets is partnering with the Rainier Chamber of Commerce, the 21st Annual Rainier Valley Heritage Parade and the Columbia City Business Association for some good old fashioned fun.
This year’s theme is “Picnic in the Street.” Bring your blanket or lawn chairs and lounge along Rainier. Restaurants will be serving picnic food and food trucks will be located in the Full Tilt parking lot. And there are so many things to do! Enter a pie eating contest, shop at Art in the Alley, check out the BBQ contest, go on a bike scavenger hunt and join Detective Cookie for chess. Stay till the end and be a part of the World Dance Party at 2:30PM!
