If you recognize these lyrics, you’ll recall that they’re from a 1978 “Queen” song called “Bicycle Race.” And this Saturday, May 24th, 2014 in beautiful Burlington, Iowa they held a bicycle race called The Snake Alley Criterium. This just one of a series of races held this Memorial Day weekend in and around Southeast Iowa.
And, of course, the Snake Alley Criterium is followed by The Snake Alley Festival of Film in little more than a week’s time.
The Snake Alley Festival of Film is followed by Cyn-A-Palooza and their world-class Wiener Dog races.
And on the heels of Cyn-A-Palooza is a big music festival called “Steamboat Days.”
The, of course, there’s the Snake Alley Art Festival followed by…”I don’t know, I can’t keep up with all the happenings in this town.”
The bottom line is—This town rocks. But that begs the question, “When do these folks work?”
All joking aside, this year’s Snake Alley Festival of Film is going to be bigger and better than ever. The reason I mentioned those other events is to show you that there is always something going on here…and something for everyone. So, bring your family to The Snake Alley Festival of Film and let them enjoy all that Burlington, Iowa has to offer.
