Fridays weather was perfect- for the bike parade to the dedication ceremony, the ribbon cutting, checking out the route of the Magic Mile and the rest of the events at the NDS Out to Lunch Event in Downtown Barberton. The bike parade started at the Snyder Avenue/Wolf trail head and we rode to the dedication ceremony at the connector bridge. Mayor Judge thanked everyone helping to make the events of the day possible, and the New Horizons Band provided a musical interlude as well as our National Anthem. Following the ribbon cutting the parade of bikes continued on the Magic Mile route lead by Barberton Police officers, others walked the marked sidewalk route.
The Magic Mile and the bridge connector will aid cyclists and walkers in exploring all that Downtown Barberton has to offer!
