Just a heads up that the city of Spokane is celebrating its 125th anniversary starting this week.
On Saturday, Nov. 25, from noon to 4 p.m. the city will put on "an amazing race through Spokane history."
Start at City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., any time between noon and 4 p.m. It'll take at least an hour to finish the race.
At City Hall you'll get instructions and a game card and a clue, the latter will take you to your next destination. Proceed this way until you've been through five destinations and found all the game cards.
At the finish line, Mayor Dennis Hession will be waiting for you with a special commemorative coin and a slice of birthday cake.
Then it's on to treelighting in Riverfront Park at 4:30 p.m. Santa will be there and there'll be hot cocoa and fireworks.
Everything is free.
Happy birthday Spokane.
