Second Annual ROLL Community Festival and Bike Ride
August 28, 2016 from 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Whether you ride or not, many activities will be available at the ROLL festival. Carnival rides, games and inflatables will surely please one and all. A roving magician will thrill you with amazing card tricks. A game wristband, good for unlimited fun, will be $5. The fee includes face painting, games, and admission to the inflatables.
The parish chapter of the Knights of Columbus has a tantalizing menu planned. You will be treated to their famous fish tacos, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, “picnic” side dishes and lemonade from noon to 5 PM. Feel free to bring a blanket to enjoy your lunch on the lawn!
An adult meal ticket will cost $8. A meal ticket for children 4-10 years of age will be $5. Ice cream and popcorn will be available for purchase. The ROLL festival marks the ending of the Knights of Columbus food drive. With your donation of 2 cans of food to St. Vincent de Paul’s food barrel, you will receive either an ice cream or a bag of popcorn at no charge.
Noodles the Clown will entertain one and all with a magic show, face painting and balloon art from noon to 4 PM. Staring at noon, the band Beadhead will fill the ROLL festival air with “tropical rock” music. This particular type of music is described as a mix of Jimmy Buffett tunes, Zydeco and classic rock favorites. There will be plenty of dancing tunes!
The Lake Oswego Police Department will be on hand with a patrol car and a motorcycle. Officers will gladly answer questions and proudly show off their vehicles. The Lake Oswego Fire Department will also have one of their fire trucks available to check out and to climb on!
During the ROLL day, the parish Health Ministry will be in the Parish Hall to offer blood pressure checks and to screen strength and balance. They will have information on physical fitness including bike commuting.
