Norte’s AMIGO’s Arts for All Night! – July 19th

We love accessibility, and we believe art & culture are connected to aspects of a healthy lifestyle! We’re so excited to partner with Norte to combine bikes + art!

Join us and Norte, for a very special Amigos, their weekly summertime meet-up for kids with special needs, on July 19th at 6:00 at the Norte Clubhouse (south end of the Civic Center Park near the new playground).

We’ll ride bikes. We’ll make some art – and the famous Chase Hunt is going to help us create a canvas mural for the new Norte Clubhouse!

No need to bring anything. We’ll have all the bikes and art supplies.
