Pass slower traffic on the left and it is considerate to either ring your bell or say "On your left" to the walker, jogger or biker you are passing to alert them of your presence.

VENDORS!  A variety of vendors will be available in the Community Center for a fun shopping experience! Items from health, fitness, handmade crafts and unique gifts! Available from 10am-6pm
