[MUSIC]>>ON SATURDAY, WE WILL BE
CELEBRATING 12 MILES OF THE GRAND CANALSCAPE
THAT’S NOW COMPLETE. WE’LL HAVE MARCHING BANDS. WE’LL HAVE STROLLING
ENTERTAINERS. WE HAVE A SAXOPHONIST AND A
GUITARIST AND FACE PAINTERS FOR THE KIDS, BALLOON TWISTERS. WE’LL HAVE EXHIBITORS SETTING UP
SHOWCASING THEIR BUSINESSES, WITH AN INTERACTIVE ACTIVITY
STATION ALL ALONG THE TRAIL, FROM 7TH STREET ALL THE WAY OVER
TO 9TH AVENUE.>>THIS PROJECT IS AN IMPORTANT
CONNECTION. IT CONNECTS THE CENTRAL PHOENIX
AREA TO TEMPE. SO IT EXPANDS GREATLY THE
OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE VALLEY. WALKING, JOGGING, BICYCLING,
AND BEING ABLE TO DO THAT OFF THE STREET.>>THIS PROJECT WAS FUNDED
PRIMARILY THROUGH GRANTS TO BUILD THIS 10-FOOT-WIDE CONCRETE
TRAIL — LANDSCAPE IT, LIGHT IT, AND PUT IN 17 DIFFERENT
NEIGHBORHOOD CONNECTION POINTS.>>WITH THESE NEIGHBORHOOD
CONNECTIONS, THIS AFFORDS PEOPLE THE CHANCE TO REDISCOVER THE
CANAL SYSTEM, AND USE IT FOR RECREATION.>>WE REALLY WANT ALL AGES,
ALL ABILITIES, TO COME OUT AND CELEBRATE WITH US ON SATURDAY
FROM 10:00 TO NOON. [MUSIC]
