Calling all Biker's & Walker's

You're invited to join the Activate staff as they bring out the bikes for the Uptown Christmas Parade.

If you prefer walking, that would be great too! The Parade will begin a 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 5th. If you would like to join in on the fun, please email no later than Thursday, December 3rd.

If you don't have a bike but would like to participate, Activate will supply bikes on a first come, first serve basis. Please arrive at 5 p.m. in the West Piedmont Business Development Center parking lot. The parking lot faces Broad Sreet and the big chair uptown.

At 5 Activate will get everyone who needs bikes on them and those walking signs that are being prepared. Santa and reindeer hats will be available, but feel free to wear your own festive Christmas attire (especially if you have something that lights up or Activate t-shirts over plenty of warm clothing).

For those of you bringing your own bikes, if you have flashing bike reflector lights please put those on your bikes.

Activate is # 21 in the parade, and estimate about an hour of walking or biking depending on how quickly the parade moves, so hopefully you'll be finished by 7 or 7:30 Saturday night.
