You can ride the big bike next week — and help fundraise with big barbecues this week.
The Town of Osoyoos will be hosting the Big Bike fundraiser Friday, May 4 at Gyro park. The event is in support of the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
A second barbecue fundraiser will be held Saturday at Buy Low Foods.
Friday, hamburgers and hot dogs will be on sale between 4 and 7 p.m. — the burgers combining with chips and a pop for $5 and hotdogs in the same meal for $3 — and some family activities and face painting will be available to keep the youngsters busy.
Live entertainment will be provided by Sister Soul.
Saturday, Buy Low patrons can stop by between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to support the fundraising effort.
The Big Bike is in the community May 9. Seven teams of riders will keep the bike busy on Osoyoos streets between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
