This year the 7th Annual Bike Race Block Party set for Sunday, June 6, 9am-3pm. Located directly on the race route, at Midvale Ave and Kelly Drive. Two blocks of the Riverfront are set aside for you and your family to watch 10 laps of exciting bike racing from bleachers or the comfort of your blanket and chairs.
You can dance to live music, eat at food stations from local eateries or relax a little bit at the beer garden. For the kids they join the fun in the supervised activities area with clowns and face painters. Take a minute for yourself at the health fair for information on your health and fitness. Park your bikes in attended bike corral and enjoy the day. Also keep eyes out for people handing out freebies.
Last year I took my daughter to see the Manayunk Bike Race for the first time. I enjoyed taking my daughter to see the bikers fly by and ringing the cowbell. I didn’t make it into Manayunk instead I opted for the Bike Race Block Party in East Falls. It was a different experience than previous pre-baby years. Although it was very family friendly there was fun for people all ages.
Here are the pictures from last year. Of course my husband was working so it was just Sophia and I. You can see how close we were. It was nice and shady. A great way to enjoy the bike race 🙂
