2013 Derby Days Parade

Derby Days is a summer Redmond tradition that began as a bicycle race around Lake Sammamish in 1939. It was held as a fundraiser for downtown holiday decorations and school athletic equipment. The outgrowth of a small town's community spirit, the Derby now hosts the nation's longest running bicycle race. These days, the bicycle race is held in downtown Redmond. Except for four years (1942 to 1945) during World War II, the race has been held each year.  Today, Derby Days also includes a Parade in downtown Redmond as well as outdoor concerts, kid’s activities, carnival rides and fireworks. It is generally held the second weekend in July.
