Bike to Homewood Days – Park it with Footprints

Homewood Days polls as a premier Southland community festival – you'll want to come. But you sure as shizzle will be sorry you drove – navigating a car through town and finding parking is like a poke in the eye, all the while dumping loads of carbon dioxide into the air.

Take your bike! The Footprints coaches of Active Transportation Alliance will valet park your and your family's bikes – in a supervised corral at Olive Rd. and Dixie Hwy, no lock required! – on Saturday from 10 AM to 8 PM. Look for the Footprints bike parking tent next to the SouthtownStar Stage at the south end of the event on Dixie.

Need a good route to get there? Our coaches hand them out like candy – start with the Footprints survey at, or write to
