What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Not their first (Rolling) Rodeo…

The Rolling Rodeo returns to the playground of Southwark Elementary School, 9th and Mifflin streets, Saturday, May 12th, from 10am to 12pm. Children under 12 years old from surrounding neighborhoods are invited to bring “anything with wheels” (and their parents or a guardian) to this family-friendly event. The Rodeo is produced by the Friends of Southwark, part of the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association Education Committee which helps support the school.

Last year, children descended on the school yard on bicycles, scooters, roller skates, and in wagons. Organizers expect the same mix of wheeled conveyances this year, but they’ve collaborated with new partners to expand the event. Children can decorate their rides, race through a road-safety obstacle course, and participate in other games. As Friends of Southwark chair Nichole Girgenti explained: “The event provides a safe space for children to ride and race, while learning the rules of the road and participating in helmet and bike checks.”

In addition to the learning component, “The 2017 Rolling Rodeo was successful as a welcoming and inclusive event for all of our South Philadelphia neighbors,” Girgenti explained, “This is due in large part to the driving force behind the event, David Krill.” Krill, a neighbor of the school and Friends of Southwark member, conceived and found funding for the event.
