This year we will be focusing around a riding contingent painted in the Cascadian colors, and cycling as a block of blue white and green! Once we reach the end of the parade at Gasworks Park, we will dance, wave flags, and have a table with flyers and flags to share the Cascadia love. We will have blue, white, green and black paint available and small bicycle flags available by donation so you can fly the flag whatever paint design you have in mind for your body.
