Winterhaven Festival ‘party bikes’ returns for second year
Arizona Party Bike company establishing new yearly tradition for thousands of Winterhaven Festival goers
December 12 – 25, 2015
What pedals in gear and brings holiday cheer? The Arizona Party Bike!
The Winterhaven neighborhood, which for decades has hosted the Festival of Lights drawing tens of thousands of people each year, is welcoming the Arizona Party Bike back for a second year to operate tours during the festival.
(In case you haven’t seen it, the Arizona Party Bike is a large, pedal-powered vehicle that operates downtown and is usually rented out by groups for nights out on the town, local craft beer tours, and special occasions. Guests may BYOB while enjoying all the pedaling glory.)
From December 12 – 25, Arizona Party Bike will operate fun, family-friendly tours of the festival each hour from 6pm to 10pm. Groups can enjoy the lights and decorations of the Winterhaven Festival while riding out in the open air and listening to holiday music. By utilizing four 15-person party bikes, as few as one seat to as many as 60 seats can be booked at a time, making this a great option for groups of friends, families, and companies looking for a new and fun way to enjoy the festival!
Proceeds from the vendors help pay for the festival every year, including barricades and traffic control.
“We are very excited to be back for a second year and to participate in such a great Tucson holiday tradition,” said Robert Mayer, president of Arizona Party Bike, “Tours on the party bikes will be the perfect way to enjoy the festival and lights with friends and family this year.”
“My hope is that we continue to provide an outstanding service for the festival, and that our fellow Tucsonans look at our party bike tours as a tradition even five and ten year down the road,” said Mayer.
Individual seats will cost $16 per person. The approximately hour-long tours of the festival will begin in front of Shooters Steakhouse on the corner N. Country Club Rd. & E. Prince Rd. Reservations are recommended.
Seat reservations can be made on the spot or in advance at www.arizonapartybike.com/book-a-tour/
