The event will start with a plaque dedication for Officer Peak. In 1915, Peak was shot in the line of duty and remains the only Loveland police officer to be killed while performing his job. He will be honored at the site where he was shot on E. Second Street. After the dedication, at 8:45am Historians Jeff and Cindy Feneis will lead the bike tour stopping at relevant locations during that period of time and then head to a historic preservation festival at Foote Lagoon at 10:00am. The festival will be a joint event with The People’s Market. There attendees will enjoy food, games (including a frozen pants contest), more Loveland history, preservation workshops, as well as The People’s Market vendor booths repurposed furniture, eco-friendly locally made gifts, jewelry and more. Attendees can also see a Marshal Frank Peak display and an antique law-enforcement uniform (including pants, of course) from the 1900s in the Library as well as a Frank Peak exhibit in the Loveland Museum.
Space is limited and reservations are required for the Bike Tour.
