Wild West Harley Davidson to Hold 33rd Annual Toys for Tots Motorcycle Ride [AUDIO]
Danny Barnhill of Wild West Harley-Davidson stopped by the News/Talk 790 KFYO studios Tuesday to talk with Lubbock's First News' Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the 33rd Annual Toys for Tots motorcycle ride.
Riders will meet at the Wild West Harley-Davidson store, located at 5702 58th St., beginning at noon Sunday, November 23. The parade starts at 2 p.m. and will head down Milwaukee Avenue to the Marsha Sharp Freeway, then to Texas Avenue. Finally, the group will ride into the Depot District.
To participate in the ride, riders are asked to donate one new unwrapped toy, valued between $10-15, to the United States Marines' Toys For Tots program.
Barnhill said organizers are hoping for around 1,500 riders to participate.
He stressed the importance of having lots of riders and many toy donations for this year's event because four inches of snow and ice hampered last year's efforts.
The weather forecast for Sunday is currently calling for sunny skies, temperatures in the 60s and gusty winds. But rain or shine, the riders will ride.
