 [FLYER]
Kids are a huge priority during Canal Days weekend and we do everything we can to make sure they have fun and have chances to win lots of prizes. So, Canal Days will hold a Big Bike Raffle for the kids on Sunday of Canal Days after the parade. 6 - 10 bikes of all sizes and colors and one hover board will be given away to several lucky girls and boys the only catch is they must be present to WIN.  The drawings will begin at 3:15 and continue every 15 minutes until the bikes are gone. If you don't usually stay after the parade this year it might be worth your while, especially if you win a bike to take home.
