How often do you zip through your neighborhood on auto pilot? Probably most days, right? But I bet if you were on vacation you’d stroll through the downtown and meander down the street taking in the local flare.
If you were near my hood over the weekend there were several great local events to attend. On Saturday I was capturing the festivities at the grand opening of the Berkeley RoadRunner Sports and yesterday, the annual Solano Stroll was in full force. It’s a commercial avenue in Albany/Berkeley that closes for one day, to celebrate music, art, and food. It’s a wonderful celebration of the neighborhood.
What’s happening in your neighborhood? Do you like to go to the local farmers market or shop the boutiques in your downtown? Do you have a favorite park that you go to play? If you answered yes, great! Keep exploring your neighborhood and share it with us. If you answered no, then here’s a little push to get you to find the local gems in your hood.
