You know an event has hit the big leagues when it includes a parade. Well, this year, Griesbach’s annual Shake at the Lake will indeed have a parade! (Of sorts).
The Bikes, Trikes & Tykes Parade is for kids 14 and under. To enter, show up at Patricia Park Plaza on Saturday, September 23 at 12:30 pm (by the flagpoles on Griesbach Parade) with a decorated bike. Bikes will be judged and kids will ride to the main event at Perron Berger Park (around 1 pm) – where the Art In The Park art walk, bouncy castles, facepainting, food trucks and other activities will be taking place. Parents are encouraged to walk beside younger children.
Prizes will be given in two categories:
- Best Decoration
- Best Canada 150-themed Decoration
There will be three age groups: 5 and Under, 6-8, and 9-14.
There is no charge to enter or pre-registration. Just show up with an awesomely decorated bike.
The Shake at the Lake will also feature a beer gardens for the adults, with entertainment by Two Bad Apples. Twenty-five artists have confirmed for the Art In The Park art walk along Bedford Basin, and will be selling an array of original pieces and prints.
A wristband will be required to access the children’s activities: including bouncy castles, games, face painting and balloon artists. Wristbands will be provided free to those with a 2017-2018 Griesbach Community League membership ($25/household). Or they can be purchased for $5/child. Support your community and come see what makes Griesbach great.
