In Photos: Salty Street Fest

A portion of downtown Salmon Arm was abuzz with entertainment, activities, information booths and more for Salty Street Fest, Saturday’s bike-oriented event leading up to Sunday’s Salty Dog Enduro race on the South Canoe trails.

Along with registration for the race, the street festival on Hudson Avenue included music, a bike parade, a bike swap, street performers, a pie eating contest, DeMille’s petting zoo, and other vendors, services and attractions.
