Ride in the East York Canada Day Parade: Wednesday, July 1

By , June 27, 2015 5:10 am

Canada Day 2014

Only one thing is way more fun than watching a parade: being in a parade! Join Ward 29 Bikes in the 58th East York Canada Day Parade on Wednesday, July 1. This will be our sixth year in the parade and honestly, we have no idea how they kept it going for so long without us. Riding in this local tradition is the best way to have way too much fun celebrating your community, laughing with your neighbours, and riding your bike in parade formations. Circles, figure-eights…maybe we’ll try a pinwheel this year! We’ll be gathering at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 1 on the north side of Dieppe Park (on Cosburn east of Greenwood). We’ll provide decorations; you just need to bring your bike and a smile. Check out the fun we’ve had in previous years and contact us if you want more information about the parade or to confirm your participation. Don’t miss out!
