Bike Walk Wichita at Bike Beautiful

Cody and I got to man the ReCycle booth at Bike Beautiful a couple weeks ago now. It was tons of fun, and I’d like to thank Bike Walk Wichita for letting me volunteer and attend the event. There were so many awesome vendors to browse and people to meet. The venue was Distillery 244 Old Town and it was my first time inside. It was truly amazing. They created a bike path, and the models even got to ride their bikes around the stage and the people sitting.

Pictures below:

Cody and I goofing around, which is per usual whenever we volunteer together.

Really cool one person tent they had set up. It looked so comfy I totally wanted to lay down.

It was so fun I didn’t really get to take a lot of pics. Maybe again next year 😉

Company Overview: Youthville, a program division of EmberHope, specializes in foster care, parent support, residential treatment and counseling. Our highly skilled staff uses evidenced-based programs to serve hundreds of children and families each year who have experienced severe trauma or whose families are at-risk and need help.

On August 1st, we took a trip to the Old Town Square to watch local artists create chalk art and attempted to create our own “drawings”. It was amazing the masterpieces we saw, and the attendance, considering the heat that day. They had face painters, live music and other booths.

The Chalk Art Fest is a free annual event held to raise awareness and support for EmberHope, and local artists.

Here are some of the awesome sights we saw:
