ITHACA, N.Y. — Streets Alive! this year brought out a few hundred people despite the slightly unpleasant weather. Fortunately, there was little to no rain at all and people had lots of fun. The events ranged from fudge sales to music performances and dance groups. People were getting around on foot, by bike (there were quite a few electric bikes from a local company called Boxy Bikes), skateboard, scooters and more!
