New for 2018, we’ve partnered with the DeSoto Chamber of Commerce to bring you a Cycle Parade during the Fall Festival on September 22, 2018. Kids of all ages are invited to decorate their non-motorized vehicles with a fall theme, and meet at the farmers’ market to register for the event.
The registration form can be accessed here.
- 8-9:30 AM – The Jefferson County Health Department will be fitting kids for FREE bike helmets. Helmets available fit most kids from ages 2-14, depending on the size of the child. Fittings take some time, so please come early to avoid the rush.
- 10 AM – Registration for the parade begins!
- 10:20 AM – There will be a short safety clinic, so everyone gets tips about cycle safety and is safe during the parade.
- 10:40 AM – The parade begins. Participants will walk through the market to Main Street. The parade route will go from the market south on Main Street to Clement. UPDATE: For safety reasons, we will turn around at the south end of the route and ride back to the market. Judging will be at the beginning of the parade. The participant with the Best Fall Bling will win a prize. The first 100 participants to register will receive a button.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for this event: Kidz Biz Pediatrics, The Lowry Law Firm, Hopson Lumber Co., and DeSoto Supercenter.
