New this year is a bike rodeo; a great activity for kids, and parents, to learn safe bicycling skills. The fun kicks off at 12:30 pm as bikes are invited to parade down the street with the line-up of police and fire vehicles. To join the parade, plan to meet near the Brian Lane and Wilshire Drive intersection at 12:30. Don’t forget your helmet!!
