Families flocked to Bison Park in Castle Rock for the Meadows’ annual Children’s Bike Parade, games of twister for all ages, and fresh-grilled bratwurst.

Uncle Sam (on stilts) led hundreds of area children on bikes, many accompanied by their parents, around the park, but not until after the High Frontier Honor Guard from Peterson Air Force Base presented the colors with members of Boy Scout Troop 780.
