One event, two days long and three years running: The Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo is back this weekend, featuring outdoor gear giveaways, more than 60 exhibitors and activities for kids. While the youngsters (adults, too) can roast some s’mores at REI’s indoor campground site, there’s also a happy hour for the 21-and-up club benefiting the Dishman Hills Conservancy. The expo is also hosting an outdoor dog fashion show, for which pup participants can score points for their outdoors-oriented apparel and flair. With lessons on how to fix a bike flat and how to hammock, the weekend event has a little bit of everything.
Feb. 23 from 9 am-5 pm, and Sun, Feb. 24 from 10 am-4 pm • $8-$12; kids 12 and under free • Spokane Convention Center • 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. • spokaneoutdoorexpo.com • 279-7000
