Arizona City Fest continues today at Tempe Beach Park. Yesterday, the place was packed with tens of thousands of people! My wife and I took the kids for a train ride there. ( They love to ride the METRO – I’m sure that shocks everyone. ) These are a few pics and videos I took while we were there. My kids LOVED the motorcycles, BMX riders and skate boarders. They also loved the face painting, games, cotton candy, etc., etc. I didn’t really get any shots of the booths, food, or entertainment, but will probably add more to our YouTube page and to our Flickr set after today.
The Suns, Diamondbacks and Cardinals all had fun things for people to do. Let’s just say that my jump shot isn’t as smooth as it once was.
Watching the motocross guys fly through the air was seriously cool! They are performing on Rio Salado, right before you get to Tempe Beach Park and right across the street from Monti’s La Casa Vieja. The “action sports demos” are at 2pm and at 4:30pm. The festival runs from 1pm – 10pm tonight. Who knows…in addition to great food, music and planned entertainment, you might even get to see a CityFest Flash Mob! 🙂
This short video will give you just a glimpse of these guys flying through the air.
Of course, I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this “old-school” bus. You know you want one!
Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics or videos of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
