“Bringing in the Roar” Parade

Bob and I rode our motorcycle to Summit Township in Erie, PA on Thursday evening to watch the “Bringing in the Roar” parade.  The parade departed at 6:00 pm from the Presque Isle Downs & Casino and reached our location around 6:15 pm.  For the next 50 minutes we watched as THOUSANDS of bikes rode past us.

It took about 5-6 minutes before the riders started to move again.  I captured this video, as the parade started to move once again.

 

This year marks the eighth year that Roar on the Shore 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 Saint Patrick Haven, a shelter for homeless men, many of whom are veterans. The shelter is located at 147 East 12th Street in Erie.  “Roar on the Shore” is a 4-day event this year (Wednesday, July 16, through Saturday, July 19) and is held in downtown Erie, at Perry Square.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun watching that parade. Did you ever find out what happened which caused the slow down/stop???? I noticed that several were not wearing helmets… Isn’t that required in PA? I know that many states do require them and others don’t….

    Why didn’t Bob ride—or are they all Erie people?

    Hugs,
    Betsy

      Wearing helmets in PA is not required. Bob and I didn’t ride in the parade because we wanted to watch it.

    This looks like a whole lot of fun. I am wondering if you ever did find out what stopped it for a while. Great photos and video.
