So the plans are set for Saturday March 24th – years in the making to celebrate a bike route from Bellflower through Rose Park South! Lots of elements: planning, getting funds, community meetings, public works and a park!
Event/Expo location: 6th Street between Orizaba and Obispo (Street will be closed off for the event)
Date: Saturday, March 24, 2018 Expo area opens: 10 am
Grand opening speakers: 11:15 (The Mayor, Councilmember Pearce, and Councilmember Price ) AND Bike Raffle: 11:30 am
Start of Community Ride: 11:40 am (End of Expo area)
It seems like there is nothing to do and then voila – everything happens at that same time. Here are the highlights!
Saturday morning March 24th – 6th St. Bike Boulevard Bike and Ride and opening of the the new green space/park.
Saturday March 24th – Go solar – check out reducing your carbon footprint and have family fun at Luther Burbank School.
Sunday March 25th – Eggstravaganza 10am to noon at Rose Park (8th & Orizaba). Has gone for over a decade and people keep returning and bringing friends, especially their 3 year old acquaintances. Thanks to Shannon Jones Real Estate Team that returns with fun stuff and appreciated support! Danny on hand with music, LB Public Library with mobile unit, voter registration and that all time hit the photo booth. Don’t have a basket – not to worry you and the kids will get to make one. We’ll have ambassadors, crafts, coffee and engagement for the adults and that not to be missed (only if you close your eyes) the Egg Dash.
The egg team: Danielle, Tim, Carrie – go Team!
