On Saturday, Woody and I checked out NYC Adventure, which I mentioned in my last 5 for Friday post. It reminded me of the Central Park Winter Jam in February - which is good, since people had a blast at that event. This one was no different. It was packed with enthusiastic people of all ages! Here are a few pictures from the event:
free bike helmets and safety info for riders of all ages
booths featuring food from local farms and info from organizations like the American Hiking Society, Sierra Club, the National Parks Service, and companies like Merrill, EMS, and Honest Tea (just to name a few)
North Face was showing people how they could create energy using their bikes (and charging iPhones)
kids learned how to fish
others climbed rock walls (there were two walls for adults, too)
the NBCU tent featured fitness demos like this one featuring two Season 7 Biggest Loser contestants Nicole & Damien in the red shirts, and cooking demos (that's Top Chef former contestant, Carla on the far left).
people lined up around Bethesda Fountain to kayak in the pond
People also learned to fly fish, took mini-yoga classes, saw martial arts demonstrations and much more! Another great event in Central Park!
