As the school year winds down, Josh Stowell wanted to celebrate the Major Taylor Project Tacoma's growth this year with an all-out party. Tacoma's MTP Operations Manager, Stowell thought his students deserved an amazing Halloween party as a reward for their hard work and training.
Stowell pulled out all the stops, including bringing dozens of bikes he built over a month and a half for his students to ride. The costume-themed Halloween bike extravaganza included a taco bar, cake, accessible tricycles, "tall tall and short tall" bikes, prizes, games, and more.
The evening kicked off with students taking a "spooky spin" around the Mount Tahoma High School gymnasium, testing out their skills on unicycles, electric-recumbant bikes, BMX bikes, and all sorts of two-wheeled and three-wheeled cycles.
More than 20 students from across Tacoma joined the celebration. They hailed from every school Cascade MTP is located at -- Mount Tahoma, IDEA, Lincoln, Stewart, and First Creek.
Volunteers helped set up a taco bar with chips and salsa + candy bags for each student, while Josh organized dozens of giveaways for students, including skull-decorated helmets, bike pumps, bike lights, warm-weather gear, T-shirts, and even a new bike.
All in all, the event was a boo-nanas good time!
