Date of Event: Sunday, April 22, 2018     9:30:00 AM to 5:00:00 PM

Description of Event: Come join us for a guided ride through the scenic backroads of Citrus county as we celebrate the right of every kid to enjoy a happy, healthy childhood. This ride is in support of National Child Abuse Prevention month and has joined forces with the Pinwheels For Prevention program overseen by the Prevent Child Abuse of Florida organization. Ride registration will open at 9:30 am at Crystal H-D. Guided rides will begin at 11:00 am and should last approximately one hour. The event venue will be open to the general public at 12:00 pm and the event will complete at 5:00 pm. But there's more! The fun will begin upon our return to Crystal Harley-Davidson! Every registrant gets 5 tickets they can use to bid on items offered by our agency partners and event vendors. In addition, every registrant will be given a "treasure map" to complete. The completed maps enter you in the Grand Prize drawing, sponsored by Crystal H-D. Most importantly, every registrant gets a pinwheel to be planted in our pinwheel garden at the venue. Be sure to plant yours in support of every child's right to a safe and happy childhood. And all the while, enjoy the food and music available at the event. That's still not all! Special guest Jean Davidson (granddaughter of H-D founder William Davidson, and founder of the Yell and Tell Foundation) will be hosting a Meet and Greet. Learn more about the history of the H-D brand from a woman that was there as it was being made! This is also an event open to the general public and kid-friendly! There will be fun and games for the children and over a dozen community agencies from Hernando and Citrus counties there to provide you with valuable information and resources. Of course, the vendors you've come to know and love will be there for your shopping pleasure! So much to do! So little time! Don't miss out! REGISTER TODAY!
