See you next year!
The OZ Kids™ Bike & Book Festival was a great time!
The 2nd annual OZ Kids™ Bike & Book Fest saw a crowd of over 1,200 people participating in a multitude of bike-and-book-themed activities and giveaways. Thank you to everyone who attended and to those that helped make the event possible!
The Library gave away hundreds of books to all ages. We also featured the crowd-favorite: princess storytime with Wonder by Wonder Parties.
Hands-on fun for everyone!
Whether you're the engineering enthusiast or the artist, we had something for everyone to do before the parade finale. We offered face painting by Dancenhance Entertainment, building blocks with Flintco and bike decorating sponsored by The Walmart Museum.
Let's get physical!
It was a beautiful day to work up a sweat or stretch out. We had a number of fun movement-oriented activities including Family Yoga with Cocoon Yoga Lab, a jump bag from Buddy Pegs and a skills course from Strider Bikes.
Not to mention the music!
The Juice provided a whopping good time throughout the event with music and a little help from their "new lead singer" Heather.
You can't stay active without nourishment
With tasty sandwiches and snacks provided by the Bentonville Library Foundation everyone stayed hydrated and full.
Time to show off!
We ended the festivities with a bike parade through downtown! Hundreds road decorated bikes past the square with a police escort. And boy did they show out!
A huge thank you to those that made this event possible behind the scenes!
