CEDAR HILL—Hillside Village welcomes cycle enthusiasts with Bikes on the Boulevard Friday. Today’s event will feature hand-painted bikes rolling into the Village Green in conjunction with several free community events. The Head for the Hills Cedar Hill Rotary Bike Rally will start and conclude at the shopping center the following morning.
Recently, local artists have whimsically hand-painted seven bicycles on display in the landscaping throughout Hillside Village. Later they will be raffled off to benefit Art & Beyond, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to serving at-risk and economically disadvantaged youth in the DFW community.
The artists include James Cahalan, Robin Ingle, Keyla Retana and Jennifer Rodriguez. Raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each or three for $10 at the event or online at http://www.veartgallery.com/.
