Join hundreds of riders for a rolling Halloween costume party! The police escorted parade begins at City Hall Park at 2PM, winds through downtown and the Old North End, and ends with a Halloween party at Maglianero Cafe, 47 Maple St. (approx. 3 - 5pm). This is a family friendly, all ages event and open to bikers, walkers, skateboarders and in-liners. And new this year…the Halloween Bike Ride will feature a costume competition! The judges will award prizes in the following categories: Best Costume - Adult, Best Costume - Child, Best Decorated Bicycle and Best Group Costume (friends, neighbors, co-workers, get your game on). In addition a King and Queen will be chosen from those present for the ride to wear the coveted "Shared Streets" Crowns for the parade. Judging will be conducted beginning at 1:30pm at City Hall Park. Winners will be announced at the post-ride party at Maglianero.
