More pictures from the day, available in our SustainableLA Flickr photo set.
A chance meeting on the South Lawn of City Hall one afternoon led to Flying Pigeon LA getting a booth space at the SustainableLA street fair on Sunday, August 17, 2008 (which was being held in conjunction with the Downtown Film Festival). The fair was put together by the same highly capable, and yet supremely laid back, folks who organize the Downtown L.A. Farmer’s Market.
The Flying Pigeon crew had an awesome time, talking up our bikes, handing out flyers, and generally socializing with all the greenies and the curious passerby at the fair. There were two hard-core downtown news junkies on the scene: Eric from blogdowntown and the infamous (and hillarious) D. Garzilla, the Central City East blogger extraordinaire.
We ran into a lot of familiar folks in the bicycles and sustainability scenes: the Theodore Payne Foundation, C.I.C.L.E.org and their awesome info and bike trailer collection, and the westside’s EarthFlow Design Works. The Bike Oven was there too, providing free a bicycle valet parking to those hearty enough to make the climb to the top of Bunker Hill.
