It only officially happens once a year, so grease up your bike chain and don’t miss the fifth annual Summer Parkways community street festival. Since its inception, Summer Parkways has grown to attract thousands of Spokanites from all over town — not just those who live in South Hill host neighborhoods Comstock and Manito. There, four miles of city streets are closed to make way for carnival-style games and activities, with the highlight of the annual Bike Decorating Contest. Use whatever materials you have laying around and then some: streamers, pom-poms, flowers, ribbon, stickers, flags, etc. The contest isn’t just for kids — there’s an adult category too. Titles are awarded for most colorful, best themed, most blinged-out handlebars, best decorated bike basket and more.
