The East Village Community Coalition is hosting the third annual Kids' Art Bike Parade on Saturday, May 8th in Tompkins Squar Park. It is a celebration of the arts, bicycling and sustainable street design. In addition to riding in the Parade, folks may transform their bicycles into mobile works of art, join the Learn-to-Ride Class (begins at 10:00 a.m.), take advantage of free bicycle tune-ups and benefit from free helmet fittings and giveaways.
Additionally, there will be live entertainment in Tompkins Square before the Parade, and Rude Mechanical Orchestra will welcome Parade participants back into the Park before the free raffle and post-ride refreshments.
Parade co-sponsors include Transportation Alternatives, Recycle-A-Bicycle, the Lower East Side Peoples' Mutual Housing Association, Bike New York and the NYC Department of Transportation.
