We rode to Erie yesterday and stopped for a short time at “Roar on the Shore”. This year marks the fifth year that this event has been held in Erie. According to the “Roar on the Shore” website, this motorcycle rally was created to serve as a fund-raising event for a local charity. Proceeds from this year’s rally will benefit the Flight 93 National Memorial. “Roar on the Shore” is a 3-day event (Thursday-Saturday) and is held in downtown Erie, at Perry Square.
We arrived in downtown Erie shortly before noon. Our motorcycle has a license plate that reads “GO MAD”. Can you pick out our motorcycle in the photograph shown below?
We checked out several vendor booths (didn’t purchase anything) and watched the Bill Dixon Stunt Show. The stunt show was a crowd pleaser!
We didn’t stay long at “Roar on the Shore”, as it was very hot in downtown Erie. There wasn’t anything happening to hold our attention either. The concerts wouldn’t start until evening. We left “Roar on the Shore” after watching the stunt show. We rode to Presque Isle State Park — the topic of my next blog post.
