Waukee’s Centennial Park is your home base for the 2014 BACooN RIDE with camping, entertainment and parking available to registered riders. Bacon lovers will have plenty of fun activities and bacon to make them feel right at home.
Camping will be available to all registered riders in Centennial Park on Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28. Because Centennial Park was used as the main campground on RAGBRAI in 2006, the city of Waukee is ready to fulfill the needs of riders and campers, including those with tents, buses or RVs. Camping will be free to registered participants and there will be no electric hook-ups for buses or RVs.
Starting Friday night, riders and community members will be able to quench their thirst at a beverage garden in Centennial Park from 5:00-11:00 p.m. The band “Swing Crew” will keep the fun alive from 7:00-11:00 p.m.
On Saturday morning, the Waukee Fire Department and the Iowa Egg Council will provide riders with an extra boost of protein with a bacon and egg breakfast taco in Centennial Park from 6:00-10:00 a.m. And after the BACooN RIDE is over, the fun will continue at Mickey’s Irish Pub in Waukee where band LESSON 7 will entertain and beverages will be plentiful.
