Walk and Wheel Event 2013

I have attached all the events that are going on for the Walk and Wheel Event. Friends of Ellenwood Park are hosting a Bicycle decorating and parade event, on Sunday, May 26th from 1 to 3, at the ski cabin. There will be decorating materials provided, but feel free to bring some of your own to express your individuality. The parade will leave the ski cabin at 2PM and travel around the paved loop. Cookies and juice will be available, at the ski cabin, after the parade.

Park ‘n Walk! (or wheel)From May 25, and for the whole month of June, you can park your vehicle at theMariner’s Centre or the Prospect Street Parking Lot. It’s a short walk from there to many destinations.
