Once again this year is the return of the bike parade. This parade is an opportunity for youngsters to show they live an active lifestyle and ride along with the grand marshall. Thousands of people line the streets of downtown Essex Centre and this is an exciting opportunity for children to become involved.
We are looking for children between 5 and 8 years old and they must have a parent or guardian to ride along with them.
The first 50 registrants will be accepted to participate and we will contact you with further details the week of the parade.
We require bike parade participants to be available between 9:30am and 11:00am on June 30th, 2020.
