Bring your unicycles, bicycles, tricycles, quads and even your five, six or seven-wheeled bikes to Real Art Ways, pimp out your ride, and head to watch the fireworks at Riverfest in style. Once you have covered your bike with stickers, paint and sparkles, the group will then follow a 7.5 mile route with either a boombox or transistor radio strapped to every bike to serenade onlookers with patriotic marches and songs as fireworks light up the city. After the festivities, come back to Real Art Ways to enjoy some refreshments and tunes.
