Event Description

Join us for the PEOPLE-POWERED PARADE to the Great Unleashing on April 10th! It will be a super-fun procession of bicycles, tricycles, unicycles, walking, running, skating, costumes, tambourines, banners, and laughter! All to celebrate the many fun ways to get around that do not require burning oil.

(1) SUGGESTED- Organize a group from your own neighborhood, and make a banner together announcing your neighborhood pride (like "Transition York Neighborhood!"). Bike together from a central meeting point in your 'hood on the morning of April 10th.

(2) THE BIG GROUP PARADE will meet at the La Fiamma parking lot (next to the Bellingham Farmer's Market) between 8:30 and 8:45. We will leave promptly at 8:45 and pedal, stroll, and scoot the 6 blocks to B'ham High School. We hope to attract lots of attention and make any driver passing by notice how much fun we are having, so wear wigs or costumes, hula hoop, juggle-- anything you like. A great event for kids!

(3) We will arrive together at the high school and kick off an amazing day of learning, meeting each other, celebrating, and starting some powerful community action. There will be tons of bike parking, and free bike repairs while you are in the event. (See the Great Unleashing event for more details).

York neighborhood is leaving Franklin Park at 8:30 AM to join the parade.

There are also groups gathering at the Fairhaven Village Green, and WWU Red Square-- probably both in the 8:15 to 8:30 range.

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

Oh so much fun to look forward to!
I'm assuming I'll be welcomed to join on my electric-power-assisted bicycle! It helps me over the hills along the way!
