The hustle and bustle of Sherman Avenue in downtown Coeur d’Alene almost becomes routine during the other 360 days of the year.
People on their lunch breaks, tourists, and everyone in between.
But when the clock strikes noon, the performers come out to play.
Flutes, guitars, kids juggling, anyone with some sort of talent taking part in Street Music Week.
The initiative helps Second Harvest Food Bank raise money for families who depend on meals, especially when school’s out.
“Everybody wants to be here and I want to be here too, the energy is just fantastic,” Adam Foote said.
Ethereal in E’s Adam Foote was one of the many performers.
Foote, a former school counselor, knows how helpful Second Harvest is.
He says he would help deliver food when the food bank would drop off lunches at his school
“Those kids really trusted in the program, in the food, because it's what got them through the weekend or the long breaks,” Foote said.
So if you see someone performing, don’t be afraid to drop him or her a dollar.
The event lasts all week from noon to 1 PM through Friday in downtown Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.
