Before we settle in to watch Tour de France, local racers will be competing in the Thursday Night Bike Races in the park. These short, fast-paced criterium races will feature men categories 1 through 4 as well as a women’s only race.

While the racers are going in circles, you can browse the vendor booths, take the kids to play at the art table and Wheelie Fun Course, relax with a picnic in the grass or catch up with friends over frothy Schooner Exact Brewery beverage in the beer garden.

As the sun goes down, all eyes will be on a giant, inflatable screen as the world’s best male cyclists compete for a Tour de France stage win in the mountains.

Here’s the schedule of events:

4 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Kids activities -Bike art table and Wheelie Fun Course & more
