The tagline for the third annual community movement festival from Coeur d’Alene’s education and maker’s space Gizmo is “be outrageous at GizMotion.” So don’t be afraid to go all out. If you didn’t have time to build your own kinetic (i.e. human-powered) vehicle for this year’s festival, there’s still time to deck out your bike in whatever fun and flashy way you can think up before the festival, which includes the kinetic vehicle parade at 2 pm. Make sure to register your vehicle or bike online for a small fee before showing up for the parade. Awards wil be handed out at 4 pm to recognize the craziest contraptions and most creatively decorated vehicles. The midday community gathering in Coeur d’Alene City Park, along the waterfront, also includes live music, food vendors, a beer garden and plenty of activities to keep young tinkerers’ minds and hands busy.
Sat, July 8 from 11:30 am-4 pm • Free to watch; $5-$25/parade entry • All-ages • Coeur d’Alene City Park, downtown CdA • gizmo-cda.org • 208-651-6200
