Staff pick: Alternate Transportation Festival

From the August 23, 2012 edition

Head to Cathedral Park on Saturday afternoon for a day of celebrating good ol’ self-powered transportation. From some of the guys who brought you the Bike OSU Winter Bike Show comes the Alternate Transportation Festival, a day of walking and bicycle tours, local food demonstrations and fun for kids. At night, the festival heads over to Wild Goose Creative for four hours of music from the likes of Gelatinus Cube, Awfultruth & G. Mac, Prophecy the Crew and The Worn Flints.

The goal is to get outside, get active and toss around a few ideas about improving transportation in Columbus. Organizers encourage festival-goers to walk, bike, bus or carpool.
