Allerton Avenue Festival

Attraction

Don’t miss the 6th Annual Allerton Avenue Festival taking place on Sunday, August 25, 2013 from 12pm to 5pm on Allerton Avenue between Wallace and Barnes Avenues.

The purpose of this event is to bring the community together to celebrate the cultural diversity that makes our neighborhoods a great place to live, work and raise a family.

The day will feature an International Food Show with food samplings of African, Albanian, Bangladeshi, Chinese, French, Greek, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Jewish, Latin-American, Thai, and many more cuisines!

PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY

Solution

Driving in hazardous conditions centers on slowing down and keeping a safe distance between yourself and the drivers in front of you.

Think about what would happen if a deer were to jump out on a snowy highway, and the person in front of you slammed on the brakes. Consider whether or not you would be able to stop soon enough, or if there was an accident up ahead of you. Don't let other drivers riding too close behind you force you into tailgating also.

CITY IMAGES has launched new platforms as a public service.
IDONTCARE CLUB * IDONTCARE.US

We came up with this idea last year and secured the names of our new websites.

In light of increasing toxic comments, we've decided to launch it sooner than later.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

When someone says I'm ugly, stupid, fat, mean, and everybody hates me ...etc.
Anything anyone says won't be disturbing nor what's written about me, myself, and I.

http://www.idontcare.us/

I Don't Care Club... Never mind about anyone's criticism.
