Show your team pride and “root, root, root for the home team” as we kick off the party with fun family games, activities and much more! Enjoy great food, craft beer and cocktails from delicious local restaurants.

The East Village Association will also be hosting a bike valet at the Do the Ride Thing community booth. To use the bike valet:

  2. Your bike will be tagged and you will receive a valet ticket.
  3. Enjoy the event while your bike is watched by staff.
  4. Return with your ticket and retrieve your bike.

It’s that simple. Each person who uses the bike valet will receive a free Do the Ride Thing giveaway (while supplies last). Also, enjoy 20 percent off your Uber ride to the block party using code OPENINGDAYSD.
