UPDATED WITH NEW PHOTOS!
Suzannah Heirnel had this great idea to bring a bit more sparkle to the park by having Lilburn's littlest citizenry involved - a bicycle parade! "It was something I remember from my childhood and something I wanted to bring to Lilburn," she said.
Some of the participants had worked days on decorating the handlebars and spokes of their bikes. Lots of tinsel; lots of stars and stripes and lots of red, white and blue. And lots of patriotic spirit.
Patch saw lots of moms and dads taking pictures at the Parade. We'd love for you to share yours here!
More than 60 kids ages 5-12 came out for the parade to show off their patriotism and participate in a bike safety class. The parade was part of a "Be Safe Be Seen" Bike Rodeo which was sponsored by the Lilburn Woman's Club, the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign and Bike Gwinnett. After a trip around the park, the bikers learned a few things about safe cycling.

Winners (first names only ...) for the 9 and Under Bikes:

Congratulations to all the kids and many thanks to the City of Lilburn and the Lilburn Woman's Club for putting together an exceptionally fun morning!
