  • We encourage making your event family-friendly options. Think about ways to get kids involved and excited.
  • Plan for the appropriate amount of traffic and keep everyone safe
    • If you’re setting up near a bike path, treat the path like a road and keep it clear at all times.
    • Offer bike parking at your station or event, for example with temporary racks
  • If you host an event that include food or beverages, follow all applicable food safety rules.
