The sixth annual Motorcycle Awareness Day Parade is set to take place this Saturday morning at 9:30 in Defiance.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and the parade and events this weekend will provide something for everyone, whether you ride or not.
In the past, the parade has drawn more than 250 bikes, and organizers expect even more to show up this weekend.
According to the US Department of Transportation, there were almost 5,000 motorcyclists killed in traffic crashes in 2012, the latest year that figures are available. That was up from just under 2,000 the year before.
Saturday is also Armed Forces Day, and a special tribute to veterans is also planned.
