ridenowThis long day of fun, food and festivities winds down with the annual Lighted Motorcycle Parade sponsored by RideNow Powersports. Nearly 100 motorcycle riders parade through the hills on decorated bikes and into the park igniting the million white lights along Chandler Boulevard.  If you would like to ride your bike in the parade, meet at the Foothills Baptist Church on Chandler and 21st St. at 5:15pm. No registration necessary. You will be led down Chandler and into the park by police escort. Bikes will arrive in the park at approximately 6pm. The event ends at 8pm, so you’ll have time to enjoy live music and dinner!
