Safe Routes to School at the Tomato Festival
The Solano Safe Routes to School program had a great time greeting parents and kids at our booth at the Fairfield Tomato Festival last weekend, August 20 and 21, 2016. We provided information about our free programs available to schools and asked parents how their children get to and from school (many by walking and biking!). Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
