Help Children Celebrate Everything That Makes Them Great June 24 in Penn Meadows Park

Roll over to Penn Meadows Park on Friday morning, June 24, to decorate your wheels and celebrate being exactly who you are at the Freedom Roll.

The five Ws

  • Who: All ages welcome, but geared towards children ages birth through elementary.
  • What: Come decorate your bikes, blades, strollers, wagons, wheelbarrows, wheelchairs and whatever else rolls. North Liberty Community Center staff will have colorful bike spokes, streamers, stickers, pennants and more to help you make your wheels uniquely yours.
  • Where: Penn Meadows Park pavilion, 355 E Penn St.
  • When: Decorating begins at 9 a.m., followed by a group parade throughout the park to show off your creations. Then stick around to dance and sing at a children’s concert with Little Miss Ann at 10:30 a.m.
  • Why: There has never been anyone like you ever in the world, so let’s celebrate the one and only you!

Participate for a chance to win

Each participating child will receive a raffle ticket. At 10:30 a.m., tickets will be randomly drawn to give away $50 gift cards to Sugar Bottom Bikes, a bike, scooter and other wheeled toys. Must be present to win.
