What better way to kick off Tour de Fat than with a humongous bicycle parade.
The parade is a family friendly event. WABA will provide ride marshals to help guide parade participants along the route. Roads will not be closed so we will be following all traffic laws and respecting other vehicles and traffic.
Costumes are strongly encouraged! Think tutu's, sparkles, clown wigs, bright colors, goofy hats. And don't forget to decorate your bicycle too!
Rider check-in and day-of registration goes from 10:00am to 11:00am on Saturday, June 1. The parade will depart from Yards Park at 11:00am and do a leisurely, family friends pace around the neighborhood. (The route will be less than 5 miles.) And once we return to the festival at Noon, the party will really get under way as music flows from the stages and cold beers are poured.
Look for us along Water St SE, gathering between 3rd and 4th Streets SE.
