The annual Kiddies Bike Parade will take place at 10 a.m. Monday on First Avenue South.
This 1 1/2-mile, leisurely-paced parade will start at the south parking lot on First Avenue and proceed south on First Avenue to Eighth Street, over to Second Avenue Southeast and then south to and through McElroy Park, ending up at the Sertoma Shelter for prize presentations and treats by the Sertoma Club.
All bikers are invited to ride in the parade and must wear bike helmets. This family event encourages families to ride or walk together with parents accompanying younger bikers. No motorized bikes of any kind are allowed.
All bikers under 12 will receive a coupon for a free kiddie ice cream cone from Dairy Queen of Jamestown and the Sertoma Club will serve all bikers and guests free root beer floats at the conclusion of the parade.
The theme of the parade is the Fourth of July and prizes will be awarded for the best decorated bikes: first place, $20, and second and third place $10 each. Children under 12 can also register at the start of the parade for a boys' and girls' bike to be given away, courtesy of Officeland, and two bike helmets courtesy of Central Valley Health. Children 13 to 18 can register for two $10 prizes.
Judging for the best decorated bikes will take place at the parking lot and announced at the social at the Sertoma Shelter after the parade. Judging will be based on display of red, white and blue decorations, originality and first impressions.
Bikers are asked to be at the south parking lot by 9:30 a.m. to get into their positions for the parade. For more information, call Charlie Kourajian at 320-3015.
The parade is sponsored by the Jamestown Main Street Downtown Association in partnership with the Sertoma Club of Jamestown, Dairy Queen of Jamestown, Officeland, Walmart, the Jamestown Patriotic Council and the Jamestown Safe Communities Coalition.
