Oct. 4th, Kid's Art Bike Parade
Get out your wheels and get ready for fun at one of the most enjoyable neighborhood events of 2008.
The East Village Community Coalition presents...The Second Annual Lower East Side Kids' Art Bike Parade!
When: Saturday, October 4, 11 AM- 2 PM
Where: Tompkins Square Park, northeast corner at Avenue A and 10th Street
Who: You, joined by Lower East Side neighbors, friends, and kids of all ages -- from toddlers to senior citizens
What: Decorate your bike either at our advance workshops or at our on-the-spot bike-decorating event starting at 11 AM before the parade -- then hop on and join the crowd as we parade our human-powered wheels around the neighborhood
Why: The East Village is always ahead of the game. This time, it's the youngest people in our neighborhood showing adults, the city, and the entire world how fun and healthy it is to enjoy non-polluting transportation powered by our own legs and (in this case) by our own imaginations. By encouraging a new generation of bike riders, we cut back on the pollution that causes global warming and we establish a happy future for our neighborhood.
