5:00-7:00 PM: Seersucker Bike Ride
Prepare your seersucker, linen, and other summer fashions and clean your bikes for a splendid and lazy bicycle ride planned through scenic Fort Thomas from Tower Park to Highlands High School. We will head out from Tower Park by the Mess Hall and bike down South Fort Thomas Avenue to North Fort Thomas Avenue towards Highlands High School. At Highlands, you can enjoy refreshments provided by the Fort Thomas Education Foundation and have your photo taken courtesy of Marian Sizemore of State Farm. Then pedal back to Tower Park for some good old summertime fun. At the end of the ride, there will be food trucks available. You can throw down a blanket and enjoy some great food on the lawn of Tower Park by the Mess Hall. There will be badminton, and croquet. Just remember, this is not a race, just a slow, fun ride. No registration needed. Just show up.
