    Pima County enhances the lives of its residents in a multitude of ways, whether through health services, sustainability efforts or entertainment options. This year’s Pima County pavilion at Tucson Meet Yourself will be centered on showcasing the County’s history of service to the community and the changes departments have made to keep up with current needs.

    Tucson Meet Yourself tentThe Pima County Pavilion will be open during the three-day Tucson Meet Yourself festival on Friday, Oct. 10, through Sunday, Oct. 12. Pavilion hours Friday and Saturday will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Festival hours extend into the evenings beyond pavilion hours).

    The big tent in front of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library will hold interactive displays to engage members of the community and tell Pima County’s story of service. Participating departments include Pima County Health Department, Pima Animal Care Center, the Pima County Public Library, Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Department, Kino Sports Complex and The Loop.

    There will be additional interactive attractions in the Pima County pavilion and it provides an opportunity for members of the community to get out of the sun for a while, meet some adorable, adoptable pets, learn about all that Pima County has to offer, receive giveaways and enter a drawing to win prizes. Kino Sports Complex will be holding a drawing to win tickets to the Desert Diamond Cup Championship Game at Kino North Stadium on February 28. Come by for all this and more surprises.

    Consider riding your bicycle to the festival this year, and zipping into convenient, free Bike Valet Event Parking. Living Streets Alliance is launching a new bike parking program to help event organizers across the region green their events, reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, prevent bike thefts, and encourage active and healthy modes of transportation.

    The Living Streets Alliance Bike Valet Event Parking Management Program is underwritten by Pima County’s Clean Air Program, City of Tucson’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, and Visit Tucson. Financial support from event organizers allows this service to be free for those parking their bikes. The service includes on-duty valet attendants to park and monitor bikes during the event.  The portable, lightweight event bike racks can park up to 70 bikes, reducing the carbon footprint of an event and negative traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods.
