The Monroe City Chamber of Commerce held their annual Fourth of July Bike Contest prior to the start of the parade. The contest welcomed youngsters of all ages with bikes decorated in patriotic red, white and blue for the festive event.
Dare Officer Brian Walters was the judge of the contest. Each bicyclist lined up in the BP Gas Station parking lot for Officer Walters to look at their artistic decorating skills.
Officer Walters decided each bicycle entry were all winners and gave each a BB’s Ice Cream Buck for them to get their favorite sweet treat. After the contest, the bicyclists rode in the parade to show off their Fourth of July bike style.
