Ride Cool Coming to Hannibal’s Huckleberry Park
Ride Cool at the Ramp Park in Hannibal is coming back on July 15 at Huckleberry Park, sponsored by the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department and Hannibal Clinic Health Services.
The first 200 people will receive a helmet from Hannibal Clinic Health Services, starting at 10 a.m. There will be free entry to the Ramp Park all day.
“We are looking forward to collaborating with the Ramp Park community to host a unique summer event that will celebrate their athleticism and skills,” said Mary Lynne Richards of Hannibal Parks & Recreation. “And the energy from the crowd really helps pump up the competitors.” Registration for skateboard, scooter and bike competitions begin at noon. Competitions start at 1 p.m. The emcee will be Casey Otto from P9 Entertainment. Prizes for the competition will be provided by Coolbyke Bicycle Shop and Pedal’rs Bicycle Shop.
Spectators are welcome on shaded bleachers behind the Ramp Park. Tom and Becky will be there to help hand out helmets and prizes. The Ramp Park concession stand will be open, along with the Pepsi Wagon.
Knee and elbow pads are encouraged. Helmets are required and participants under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. For more information, go to www.hannibalparks.org.
