Budd Park (St. John Avenue and Brighton Avenue), April 25th, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.
This is an annual tradition that keeps getting better each year. Originally billed as a bicycle safety event for Northeast KC, this year, the annual bicycle safety rodeo will also be offering a health and financial fair for adults. My buddy JR has played a vital role in this event for the last 4 years. Also, I believe Lorin and his daughter Bailey will be volunteering. The Consulate of Mexico plays a big role in this event every year as well as they try to reach out to the Hispanic community in northeast. Several sponsors from the bicycling, financial and healthcare community are also represented.
Join the Consulate of Mexico and various other sponsors in celebrating "Dia del Niño" at the 4th annual Bike Safety Rodeo/Health and Financial Fair. Kids ages 3 to 11 and their parents are invited to attend. Kids bring your bikes! If you don't have a bike, loaner bikes will be available, and during the event refurbished and new bikes will be raffled. The first 500 registered participants, will received a bike helmet and T-shirt. This free, family focused event will feature not only a bike safety rodeo for the kids, but financial and health education for the entire family.
Here are some photos from last year's event:

These bicycles were raffled off. Some were purchased at a discount, others donated. They were all checked out and refurbished (if needed) before hand.
