Special Events

This ride is in memory of our friend and family member, John Palter, and benefitting Junior Players.

October 28, 2023 | 8:00 am | Stone Tables Pavilion at White Rock Lake

The funds raised by this ride will not only help Junior Players continue to empower young voices and transform kids' lives through the arts, but will support a memorial college scholarship(s) for one or more of our teen participants in our summer Shakespeare production.

This is a ride, not a race, and we encourage families and supporters of all experience levels to come out to ride, support, or just enjoy the nearby playground and Halloween treats! Costumes are encouraged!


The Palters have been avid fans and supporters of Junior Players for over a decade, serving as participants, Board Members, alumni, patrons, and, most importantly, Junior Players' Family Members. Throughout their many years of support, our summer Shakespeare production, during which teens are introduced to Shakespearean text and language and are provided with real hands-on professional theatrical training at no cost, has always had a special place in their hearts. John even made a special appearance alongside our participants in our 2021 production of 12th Night: A Rock Musical
