I'll go but only because I can walk. I have no car and if I wanted to go to the downtown area on a city bus, I might be able to get to the Alvarado Transit Center, but the bus stops on Gold and Copper are out of service.  It's funny (but not ha-ha funny) how many events the city promotes and then the city deletes Suntran service to get to those events. One can take buses to Balloon Fiesta but needs a car to get to the pick up points as normal bus service doesn't start that early. To my knowledge other events held at Balloon Fiesta Park also pretty much require a car. It's funny how folks have to take cars to reach walkathon sites to bring attention to lung cancer... I hope this centennial event is fun; it'll bring some new shoppers to the area.
