The Harley's roar this weekend in aid of the Salvation Army's Toy Drive

Sometime on Saturday around your neighbourhood you'll be hearing them, the constant roar of motorcycles as one by one, the participants in this years Harley Ride travel the streets of Prince Rupert and on to Port Edward.

The annual Prince Rupert Toy Run takes place this weekend with  1 PM start from the Salvation Army on Grenville Crescent, from there the participants will run the route of the Poker Run for the day, with five stops along the way.

Riders will be travelling  from downtown to such locations as the Rotary Waterfront park, to Seal Cove and Port Edward as part of their Poker Run through the afternoon.

The event features a dance on Saturday night at the Fisherman's Hall at 8 PM with Live Bands, tickets for that go for ten dollars and one new toy, either athletic or education, or a non-perishable food item.  Tickets for the dance are available at the door or from any of the riders taking part in Saturday's run. A number of door prizes will be part of Saturday night's celebration.

Saturday will also bring draw date for the draw for a 2015 Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider from Harley Davidson of Smithers, tickets at twenty dollars a shot have been on sale through the summer and into the fall for the ride, with the benefits of the fundraiser to benefit the Kaien Anti-Poverty Society and North Coast Health Improvement Society.

The draw for the bike takes place at midnight.

This years run is expected to bring in riders from across the Northwest, with over fifty motorcyclists set to roar out of the Salvation Army on Saturday afternoon, with the weather forecast offering up the prospect of a sun filled ride around the region.

Last year the ride provided 10,000 dollars to Captain Gary Shields of the Prince Rupert Salvation Army, along with 272 toys for the Christmas Hamper campaign.
