Maurice Laroque-Turgeau, president of Laroque Motorsports states “Fun for the whole family, there will be plenty to see, and do as you browse the diverse selection of vintage motorcycles, parts, collectibles and accessories. We’ll have vendors covering almost 100 years of motorcycling plus a wide variety of activities to experience including the “Vintage Motorcycle Show by Hagerty.” Also included will be participation by the Antique Motorcycle Club of America (AMCA) and the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club of America (VJMC).

“And this is a Family Friendly event,” continues Laroque-Turgeau, “with something for everyone from the youngest to the oldest with our partnership with the children’s book series “Mimi and Moto” (mimiandmoto.com) and, including for the first time, our Strider Bike (striderbikes.com) Adventure Zone. And to the delight of children of all ages, Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit. There will also be an autograph session including Isle of Man racers and several sidecar teams with bikes on display. And for the entire family, we will be featuring a classic motorcycle movie Saturday Night, 7pm, free admission with your event pass.  Food vendors will be open until 7pm.”
