The Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred
The fourth collaboration we are featuring was our partnership with the Hotter ‘N Hell this summer. We wanted to bring something new and interesting to the annual bike race so we looked into bringing a group called the Austin Bike Zoo. They have turned bikes into giant moving sculptures. With the help of a TCA grant and the Wichita Falls Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, we scheduled the Austin Bike Zoo.
Along with the Austin Bike Zoo, we once again brought back Art Bikes. Sikes Senter Mall allowed us to display the sculptures in the mall throughout the summer.
After working with the CVB on this event, we have decided to continue our partnership with them! They’ve hosted a couple of our monthly networking sessions and are also going to be starting to sell “Don’t Fence Me In” postcard books at their visitor center at the MPEC!
