Christmas in July Moonlight Ride!

Des Moines European Heritage Association planned the perfect night out to get your Christmas fix! We held our inaugural Christmas in July Moonlight Ride on July 16 with all funds raised going to support Christkindlmarket Des Moines 2016.

Before cruising through Clive and West Des Moines along a 17-mile route, participants enjoyed live music at 515 Brewing Company. After the ride, participants re-hydrated with a 515 Brewing Company craft beer.

Gift certificates and water bottles were given as prizes for best individual costume, best-decorated bike or helmet and best team theme. Check out all of the pictures on Facebook and from Gail’s Photography and Designs, one of our sponsors.

AT&T was also on hand to discuss their products as well as to give away a FitBit HR and UE Boom 2 Waterproof Speaker as door prizes for registered riders.

We hope to see you all again next year!
