  • Participate in the Kid's Decorated Bike portion of the parade. Children 12 years and younger can bring their patriotically decorated bikes and ride together in the parade. Parents of very young children may walk with their biker. 

  • Register your club or business and walk in the parade. This option is excellent for groups who do not want to create a float.
