It was a busy Saturday on Hudson Avenue where people gathered for the Salty Street Festival.

The downtown Salmon Arm road was closed for the May 14 family friendly event – a celebratory community kick-off to Sunday’s Salty Dog Enduro mountain bike racing event at the South Canoe trails.

The Street Fest included a wide range of activities and vendors, including the used bike swap, bike stunt demonstrations by the Trails Stars, food, music and the pie eating contest.
