The annual charity event, Thunder on the Bay. Where one weekend a year Opera and Symphony give way to the roar of a Harley Davidson and the high rev screams of Cafe Racers.
Main street is shut down to all but cycle and pedestrian traffic. Custom motorcycles line up for almost a half mile on both sides and the middle of the street.
Things get really crowded with visitors from all over the world in attendance and it all ends with a concert by Foghat and a Legacy of Valor motorcycle ride to the National Veterans cemetery to the east of town.
The event raises funds for local children’s charities.
