Fort Collins Annual Spooky Bike Parade
October 31st, 2024
Location: Mobb Mountain Distillers
What: Costume Bike Parade down Mountain Ave with pre and post ride fun
Our goal is to cement an annual Halloween Bike Parade into the culture of Fort Collins. We will be working with the City of Fort Collins and other local businesses to make sure that this vision comes to life with all the vigor, fun, consideration and safety that an event like this needs. Imagine 500-1000 parade participants all dressed up, riding up and down Mountain Avenue brining music, lights, treats, and that classic lively-deadness that a Halloween parade should have!
We are looking into renting the back parking lot at Mobb Mountain and bringing in a stage with live music for the pre-and post ride time. We know there's a mighty dress-up bike parade spirit alive in Fort Collins, as demonstrated yearly with Tour de Fat; why not keep that same fun alive with a Halloween ride? We can't think of a reason why not either.
If you like this idea and have capacity to help, please reach out to Scott Bolte to join the planning committee - this will take many severed hands to pull off.
