The Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a free family festival from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, July 19. A Pedal. Play. Party! event will be held at the College of St. Benedict and will include food vendors, music, inflatables, crafts, entertainment and more. The event will be held on the final day of the Habitat for Humanity 500 bike ride which runs from July 13-19. In case of rain, the event will be held in the Clemens Field House.
Prior to the festival, CMHFH will host a 2.5-mile family bike ride by the CSB campus and a 25-mile bike ride on the Lake Wobegon Trail from Holdingford to CSB. People are encouraged to cheer on the riders as they cross the finish line, along with the Habitat 500 riders who will be completing their week-long ride.
Everyone is invited to register for either ride and to attend the celebration. More information about this festival or the rides can be found at http://cmhfh.org/ways-give/25.
