When does the event start?

The event starts off at Nelson Park with a meet and greet from 10 am until 12 pm, then kickstands up at noon as the parade rides through town ending up at Kent's Harley-Davidson. Once at Kent's, burger plates will be served for a $5 donation. There will also be an auction, so bring plenty of cash.

Whether you're on two wheels or four, join everyone at Nelson Park Saturday, October 30th. There's nothing more magical than seeing hundreds of motorcycles cruise through Abilene, with a police escort, while helping the Marines kick off their annual event.

What do I need to bring?

The most important thing to remember is an unwrapped toy (or toys) for a boy or girl. Heck, bring multiple unwrapped gifts so we can make sure all kids in our community have a Merry Christmas. Also, non-perishable canned goods will be accepted.

Best of all, riding a motorcycle this time of year is always a blast because it's not 200 degrees outside.

See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
