Join the Human-Powered Parade!

Message from Renee Goddard, Manor School team leader:

Attention all biking, walking and otherwise human-powered people!

Fairfax will celebrate the 30th year of its fantastic summer festival with the always colorful and innovative Fairfax Festival Parade on Saturday, June 9th.

Climate change is the theme of the Festival's Eco-Fest (held in the Fairfax Pavilion) and Safe Routes to Schools will be sponsoring a "human-powered" section of the parade to address this significant global and local issue. Come on out and help us raise community awareness for the need to create safe alternative transportation options and to celebrate our feet and non-motorized wheels.

Our children are leading the way by walking and biking to school in unprecedented numbers. We know how children's creativity and energy can steer us all in amazing directions. To bring visibility to their efforts and respond to our climate crisis in a positive and proactive way, we invite all of you to join and support the Human-Powered Parade. Create a float as an entry for your school, your family, or your neighborhood that celebrates human mobility and sustainable travel.
