Charity motorcycle show coming to Weston on Saturday

“Thunder on Main Street,” a charity motorcycle show, will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday on Main Street in Weston.

There is no admission charge for the event. The north entrance of Main Street will be blocked during the day between Second and First streets. Route 19 traffic will be detoured on to Water Street and back to Main Street.

The National Guard will bring a climbing wall, and there will be a bouncy house, balloons and face painting. Those activities will begin at 10 a.m.

A breakfast buffet will begin at 6 a.m. at the Weston Moose. The breakfast is sponsored by the Riders. The motorcycle show begins at 8 a.m., as does the bike registration. Voting on the people’s choice awards will be held from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All bikes must be registered by noon. Trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m.

The Lewis County Honor Guard will present the colors at noon, and the Christian Bike Association will do the “blessing of the bikes” at 12:30 p.m. A drawing will be held at 12:45 p.m. for the Riders Group Mini Chopper. Bike Games will be held at 4 p.m. in the Moose parking lot.

Main Street will reopen at 8 p.m. The Road Dawgs will be performing at the Moose from 7 to 11 p.m.

This is the third annual charity bike show, and the goal is to top the fundraising efforts of the past two years. The group’s motto is “We Ride for the Children,” and all funds raised by the Riders Group are donated to children’s charities.
