City Spruces Up Race Course Before Bloomsday

SPOKANE, Wash. - Crews this week began the yearly tradition sprucing up the city before the annual Bloomsday Run which takes place May 1. That would explain the numerous "No Parking" signs along Riverside Avenue indowntown Spokane.

The signs went up Monday so street sweepers could clean the route of dirt and debris before the weekend hits. They are cleaning Riverside from Monroe to Hemlock and Broadway Ave. from Maple to Nettleton. No parking will be permitted on those streets through Thursday.

The City also said no parking would be allowed along the race course on Sunday, and that cars left on the side of the road would be towed away at the owner's expense (call 625-4100 to recover your car if it's towed).
