It’s Friday folks! We had a blast last night at Greensboro’s City Market. As Kristen will tell you, it’s really about seeing old friends and also what’s unique and cool about each individual market. Each market has a theme and last night’s theme was cycles. How did that play out? First and foremost there were several bike themed booths last night, including this one, the Bicycling in Greensboro booth, our local bike advocacy organization.
And there were games for adults too, here’s Kristen chalking what she thought is a significant revolution of the world, asked in the spirit of cycles and movements by the fine folks at Elsewhere.
Anyway, as we are at the weekend, we are sure you’ll find yourself some fun of your own. Now the news.
