    Get into your pre-July Fourth patriotic mode. Don your red, white and blue. And then get on your bike.

    The city of Knoxville and OneMain Financial will present a patriotic festival on Market Square, from 5:30-9 p.m., on Thursday, June 27.

    Among the activities for the festival, which is being organized by the city's Special Events Office, is a Patriotic Bike Parade through downtown.

    The ride is intended for all ages, and it includes children's entertainment and live music from 7-9 p.m.

    Registration for the Bike Parade is available on site or online at the city's website,

    "We tried to do it last year on the Fourth (of July) as a fun little get-together and found out a lot of people do their neighborhood bike rides on that day, so we decided to have it on June 27, city of Knoxville special events spokesperson Elaine Leventhal said.

    At 6 p.m., judging will begin for the best-decorated bike. There will be prizes awarded in multiple categories: Family, adult, teenager, child 7-12, and child 6 and under.

    To compete in the best-decorated contest, riders must be registered and at Market Square by 5:45 p.m.

    The Patriotic Bike Parade will officially begin at 6:30 p.m. and will follow *** Street to Magnolia Avenue, Magnolia to Williams, Williams to Depot Avenue, and back down *** Street to Clinch Avenue.

    The parade will finish at Market Street and Union Avenue.
