City Savvy was on the scene at several events around the city this month. Here are few of our favorite photos from the Bike to Work Day and Houston Public Works Water Festival. 

Houston Water Festival  

 Students from Houston metro-area schools learned about many aspects of the city’s water services — where water comes from, how it is treated for clean residential and business use, how a network of pipes transports it throughout the area, and much more — at Houston Water Festival on May 3. Houston Public Works Water Department sponsors and organizes the annual event. More than 500 students attended the festival at Levy Park in Houston’s Upper Kirby/Greenwood neighborhood. Dozens of local, county and regional environmental agencies and non-profit organizations staffed booths where students could speak with subject matter experts and watch demonstrations. The festival also included fun and educational activities, a dance contest and a snowball stand.

Bike to Work Day    

 City of Houston employees took to the streets on May 17 to support cycling in the city. The annual Bike to Work Day has become a popular way for city employees and officials to promote cycling and to further efforts to expand the network of bike lanes and paths. Mayor Sylvester Turner spoke to the enthusiastic cyclists after they completed a route through part of downtown beginning and ending at City Hall. Turner said his administration will continue to support safe cycling and the expansion of dedicated bike lanes. Bike to Work Day has become a popular annual event with a yoga lesson and vendors’ booths. It is a nationwide event, sponsored locally by the COH Planning and Development Department.
