Bloomsday Weekend

#SpoCOOL / Spokane /

Bloomsday: Run, walk, or wheel, and drink free water and Gatorade-like sponsored products. Of course, check out the trade show at the Convention Center and get personal with your favorite infomercial products.

Magic Lantern Theater and Isabella’s: Saturday May 2, celebrate diversity and inclusion and stop by to view “Right to Risk”, a 1-hour documentary about a 15-day whitewater raft trip with 8 individuals with significant physical disabilities. This is a film for all ages. Check out the art exhibit in the Saranac Building lobby (25 W Main), resource tables, meet elite Bloomsday athletes between 2-3pm, enter to win a 1-day whitewater raft trip with ROW or a gift from REI. A special carbo-load meal will be offered next door at Isabella’s.

De Leon’s Sunday:
A pre Cinco de Mayo post Bloomsday event at the Francis De Leon’s location from 1-4.

SODO District:
All of the neighbors in the self-named “SO-DO” District (SO-DO = South Downtown) are offering a huge SIDEWALK SALE this weekend, Friday & Saturday May 1 & 2. It is no surprise Farm Girl Candy or OMO, short for “on my own,” will not be participating in a group event, but eat some of Marta’s truffles anyway. She is always passing out free stuff. Follow OMO on Facebook.

Participating Stores:
Vino! – WineShop, Saunders Cheese Market, Town & Country Floral, Lolo Boutique, Robert Karl Winery, 1900 – Unique Items for the Home, Left Bank Wine Bar, Concept Home, Monterey Cafe, Nosey Parker, Precision Pilates, Wild Walls, Aroma, Aqua Body Bar, Bella Boutique
