This past Saturday was all about local children and bicycle safety as the Carolina Beach Police Department hosted the long, awaited return of their Bicycle Rodeo. This year’s event featured the KING BMX stunt show as well as over twenty carnival games, thousands of dollars in raffle prizes, a bicycle safety course, bounce houses, face painting, helmet fittings, live music from DJ Tommy Gun and more.
Every child left with a properly fitted helmet, an awesome tie-dye rodeo t-shirt, CBPD reusable bag along with several prizes and giveaways. Special thanks to Cape Fear Cyclist, Island Women, Island Men, Southern Coastal Womens Club, Girl Scout Troop 867 as well as everyone else who came out and volunteered their time to Saturday’s event.
