Santa Claus Parade – For the 3rd year in a row, the Illinois Valley Wheelm’n and Bike Peoria will be teaming up as “Peoria Area Cyclists” to have our bicycle riding entry in the 127th annual Peoria Santa Claus Parade on Friday, November 28th . Our entry typically consists of members riding their various holiday-decorated bicycles, unicycles, tall bikes, etc…while wearing holiday hats, costumes, sweaters, etc.. We begin lining up at 9:15 AM near the Peoria Central Firehouse for the 10:15 AM parade kickoff, so please come prepared with warm clothing to wait outside for 1-1.5 hours before the parade starts. All participants are required to wear some form of holiday decoration/costume, and due to parade regulations NOBODY can dress up as the Jolly Old Elf (Santa)! After the parade, we typically meet back up to go to Thirty-Thirty Coffee Co. for warm drinks! Please contact Mike Honnold at email@example.com if you are interested in participating.
