TOY RUN PERMIT APPLICATION IN FOR ST KILDA
The IRG has applied to the City of Port Phillip for a permit to hold the 2016 TOY RUN for FATHR BOB on Sunday, December 11 (alternate Dec. 4) in the O'Donnell Gardens next to LUNA PARK in St Kilda. This will be the 4th St Kilda TOY RUN SINCE 2013.
Melbourne TOY RUNs began in 1978. Today more than 50 TOY RUNs are held across Australia each December.
The 2015 St Kilda TOY RUN for FATHER BOB was a great success. Please take a few minutes to look at these video links. The Sunrise program is national and it covered both the Melbourne and Adelaide TOY RUNs. The Newcastle and Hobart TOY RUNs attracted record numbers. The videos clearly show pedestrians cheering the riders, bicyclists waving in support and the slow moving motorcycle & scooter riders enjoying the event and providing a great spectacle safely.
Planning is well under way for TOY RUNs in December 2016.
