Heroes Highway Ride & Rally
June 6 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
The 12th annual Heroes Highway Ride & Rally is scheduled to take place on Saturday June 6, 2020.
The Heroes Highay Ride & Rally is an event to demonstrate our support of all who have served and do serve in the Canadian Military.
The 2020 ride will gather at the Nation Air Force Museum on RCAF Rd. in Trenton and will ride along the 401 Highway of Heroes to Memorial Park in Port Hope. (All riders must register)
As always, the HHR is a 100% free event but is attended by many Veteran-centric charities to whom you have the chance to donate to at your choosing.
We encourage all attendees to bring along canned goods for donation to the Northumberland Fare Share Food Bank.
The HHR is a fantastic opportunity to meet and talk with active CAF members, First Responders, and, of course, Veterans. There is the spectacle of the thousands of motorcycles riding into Port Hope and the live music & speeches in the bandshell. Many activities and events for kids and adults alike make the HHR a fantastic way for a family to spend a day and especially to show their appreciation to those who have provided us with such a wonderful place to live.
