2016_BBQ.jpgBBQ

Bring your appetite for a post ride celebratory BBQ on the outdoor patio at Education First. We’ll have live music and you'll be just steps away from a playground and skate park! The BBQ will take place 11:30-2pm.

If you are rider, walker, or donated $25 or more to Tour de Streets you get lunch and one free beer! Children 12 and under eat free. Additional alcoholic beverages will be available for cash purchase.

Enjoy lively music that will be sure to have you up and dancing!

In addition to music, there is a playground, splash park, and skate park just steps from the event space. 

 

 

 


TdS_fundraising.jpgFundraising

Everyone (18+) who is riding or walking is required to raise $100. Children under age 18 ride or walk for free. You will be prompted to create a personal fundraising page when you register. Creating a team is a great way to invite family and friends to join the fun!

If you are signing up to only attend the BBQ/Party, you will still need to create a personal fundraising page when you register. You can use this account to fundraise, but it’s not required.
