BikeFest - WABA's annual fundraiser

BikeFest is WABA's annual celebration and fundraiser. This year's event will be held on Friday, May 3 from 8pm to midnight at the Eastern Market. Support WABA by purchasing tickets to BikeFest. FABB is a sponsored project of WABA. While WABA does not provide us with financial support, they handle all of our non-profit paperwork. From the BikeFest website:
What to Expect at BikeFest?
Tip your top hats to bicycles by coming out to our fanciest event of the year. There will be live jazz and swing music to get your hips swayin’ and we are bringing in professional dealers and card tables to make your gamblin’ hands feel like Humphrey Bogart at Rick’s Café in Casablanca. Once your chips stack up after playing blackjack, roulette, craps and poker, you can trade them in for tickets to win bike-themed prizes.

BikeFest will also feature a silent auction with “experience packages” and vintage bike art, so come prepared to shop!

Third Annual BikeBuild Contest
The BikeBuild is back again for the third annual contest. Local shops build their own creative, innovative, sometimes wacky build for the occasion and guests vote at BikeFest for their favorite bike. The shops will auction off their new creations and the shop winner will get bragging rights and a trophy.

Dress to Impress
If you’d like to dress up, please do. So gentleman, shine your shoes and don that suit and bowtie. Ladies, show us your highest heels and most sparkling attire. And everyone, practice those gambling hands as we get the dice rolling for BikeFest 2013.
