Vintage Bicycle Fair at ECOTAY on August 7, 2011.
Few of us forget our childhood bike. In all its shiny, tasseled, and colorful glory it brought us pure joy and our first taste of freedom. As of late, our collective love affair with bikes is being rekindled, with adults around the country feeling a passion for cycles they haven’t experienced since their youth. You know the kind – the old-fashioned commuter bikes that you ride sitting upright, with sleek frames, wide handlebars, and leather handgrips and saddles. Their combination of utility, beauty, and efficiency inspires both design lust and nostalgia.
If you are a bike-lover, come to the Vintage Bicycle Fair at ECOTAY on Sunday, August 7 from 1-5pm for a fun-filled afternoon dedicated to the amazing world of the two-wheeled wonder. Take a roll down memory lane at the vintage bicycle display featuring models with names like Flyer; Stingray; Roadmaster, Phantom and Coast King.
The afternoon kicks off with a Vintage Bicycle Parade – a whimsical parade of bikes – old and new, an event for all ages. Bring your own gussied-up bike, wear a snazzy costume and join in!
After the parade, gear up for some interactive musical story telling at Doug Barr’s Children Show. His funtastic, musical-comedy concert will tickle everything from your toes to your nose. Find out what that sound is coming from inside his circus guitar; or how you can get those little trucks off your backs; or where Jeffrey’s talking jacket is hiding!
ECOTAY is located at 942 Upper Scotch Line at the corner of Menzies Munro Side Road, Tay Valley, Perth, Ontario
