This is the weekend! Oklahoma Freewheel will be invading our town in less than 72 hours! Are you ready for 500 cyclists from all over the state (and beyond) to crash our Courthouse lawn with fun and excitement?
The cyclists will scatter into the area some time in between 9am and 1pm. They are coming from Hollis so I have a feeling they will welcome shade trees, water and new scenery! We’ll give them a few hours to set up their camp, rehydrate and possibly even shower. Then at 3:30 we’re going to kick things off with a good old-fashioned Frederick parade! If you aren’t signed up you need to drag out our bike, horse or motorcycle and join in all the fun!
After the parade we will have lots going on. The Crawford Collection will be open until 5pm and their will be an Indian Motorcycle exhibit south of the Courthouse! If you follow their required guidelines you can even test drive some of the new models!
Native American dancers will entertain us around 4 o’clock or so and afterwards we can enjoy the famous Abernathy dinner than we all know and love. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children under 12. The price will include our after dinner entertainment which will consist of the Abernathy Storytellers!
Lots of businesses around town are excited about Freewheel coming! Many have set special hours to accommodate the crowds and these hours are being posted and distributed around town and on the Chamber media sites. Be sure and scope out your favorite restaurant ahead of time so you’ll know when they will be open!
Also, there a few hours left if you want to get your decorated bike set up downtown! The more the merrier. Can’t wait for the fun to begin. See you Sunday, June 7th at the Courthouse!
