Mayors from more than 200 cities are in Dallas for the U.S. Conference of Mayors -- the gathering begins today. This morning, many of them joined Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings on the new Continental Avenue pedestrian bridge. 

Also in the crowd: A.C. Gonzalez, the Dallas city manager.  He participated in yoga.

The mayors' event will be presided over by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, the former NBA point guard who is now in his second term as mayor of his hometown. He spoke with KERA about how cities can be leaders on national issues. Listen to that conversation here.
