In order to get an approximate headcount of attendees, we are asking interested participants to register ahead of time.  Onsite registration will be accepted between 12:00pm-12:30pm at Bayview Elementary School.  Registration is $5 per vehicle (bike/wagon/etc.).  Parents or guardians walking with their child are free; parents or guardians who also wish to ride with their child will be required to pay their own vehicle fee (also $5).  Registration fee includes entrance into the contest, commemorative race bib and patch.  Patches are limited to the first 100 participants.  To register, download our registration form and mail it in with payment.  Registration can be done via our Community Pass Portal, however an additional $2.95 fee will be added on when paying with a credit card.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The parade will begin at 1:00pm at Bayview Elementary School and end at the VFW Post 2179 in Port Monmouth.    The approximate 2.3 mile parade route travels down Leonardville Road, through Campbell’s Junction (also known as the Showcase Corridor), turns right onto Cherry Tree Farm Road, turns right onto Wilson Ave, and finally turns right onto Garret Place to end at the VFW Post 2179.  Participants will line up on the grass near the playground at the elementary school to begin.  Check-in and onsite registration will begin at 12:00pm.  As participants ride through the Showcase Corridor, judges will be scouring the parade and identifying their favorite decorated bike/wagon to win a prize.  Prizes will be give out at the free luncheon and celebration at the VFW Post 2179.  Carpooling or placing an end vehicle at the VFW prior to the parade is recommended.  A courtesy shuttle provided by the police will be offered from the VFW for returning to Bayview in the area of 3:00pm.
