Thanks to the generous support of local businesses, there will be a silent auction, door prizes, and a special prize for the person who raises the highest amount in pledges. And once again, younger participants (and those who are feeling particularly creative) are invited to decorate their cycles for the Decorated Bike Parade.

More Information: Lots more information about start times for the different routes; the silent auction; and all you need to know about this great outdoor event for all ages can be found at Meals on Wheels, Fredericton.
