[ARCHIVED] The "Where's the Bike?" Contest

Got plans on August 12th? Come downtown for a family movie night! Cherry Street Commons (N. Cherry Street between W. Main Street and W. Water Street) will be turned into an outdoor movie theater where the amazing adventure comedy movie Pee-wee’s Big Adventure will be shown at dusk.  Don’t miss the following activities the night of the event:

* Family fun activities will start at 6:00 PM August 12 at Treasure Island Park.  Families are encouraged to park at Hobart Arena and then bike to Treasure Island Park for the activities.

* At 7:30 PM, Troy Fire Department Bike Medics will lead a bike ride to Cherry Street Commons, where a bike corral will be provided.  

* At 8:00 PM, additional family fun activities are being planned for Cherry Street Commons.

* At dusk, the movie Pee-wee’s Big Adventure will start.

* At the conclusion of the movie, the Bike Medics will lead a bike ride back to Hobart Arena.

Families are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and enjoy the movie under the stars.

Leading up to showing Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, a “Where’s the Bike? Contest” will be held between July 28 and August 11.   Participants can be eligible to win one of two bikes.  Contest details include:

* Contestants will pick up contest cards at participating stores and restaurants, where they will get a sticker for their card once they find the “Pee-wee” located in each participating business.  

* Once contestants receive at least 10 of 20 stickers, they are eligible to be entered to win one of two bikes by dropping off completed cards to the first floor of City Hall.  

* A designated Where’s the Bike? collection box will be available at City Hall during business hours.  After business hours, completed cards may be placed in the City Hall Night Depository located to the right just inside the City Hall entrance at 100 S. Market Street.  

* Contestants who take selfies with Pee-wee and post it to Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook with #ifoundthebike, #cherrystcommons, #activatetroy, and tag a business, will be entered to win other prizes.

* Winners will be contacted prior to the event and announced immediately before the movie.

Overall, this movie is part of a community-led Master Plan that is still being created for the redevelopment and revitalization of the Downtown Riverfront. This plan recommends many different proposed ideas to make our City stronger, more vibrant, and competitive.  The primary purpose of this plan is to attract and keep people of all ages living, working and enjoying life in Troy.  The plan proposes many ideas — not just new event venues.  But it’s important to say again that it is still under development.  Right now is the perfect time to learn about the various proposals of the plan and to give us your feedback.  There is at least one more public forum (two have already been held) upcoming where citizens can learn the details of the Master Plan, ask questions and give their feedback. This public presentation will be held on  Thursday, July 27th from 7:00- 8:30 pm at the First Place Christian Center,  16 W. Franklin Street,  across from the Methodist Church and behind City Hall.   Representatives of many of the public-private steering committee will be on hand, and anyone with questions, concerns, or curiosity are encouraged to attend.  The committee is thinking that additional public meetings might be a good idea and are looking at dates, times, and places in the future.  

For more information and a list of participating businesses, visit the City of Troy website - www.troyohio.gov .
