Friday, December 16, marked the 10th annual Tour de Lights bike parade. More than 1,000 people, decked out in creative holiday attire for themselves and their bikes, joined in the ride.
The annual event, now one of Knoxville’s favorite holiday traditions, is presented by the City of Knoxville and I Bike KNX. People of all ages formed a fun, free bike parade that rolled from Market Square, through downtown and the 4th & Gill and Old North Knoxville neighborhoods. The ride has grown from just over a hundred people in the first year to more than 1,000 each year since 2015.
