Members of the American Legion Post #6 are gearing up for the 10th Anniversary American Legion Riders Freedom Ride.

The approximately 100-mile run will begin Saturday at the American Legion Post #6 building on Tate Street.

“It’s the 10th anniversary, and we will have something for everyone,” said American Legion Riders Director Mike Hurst.

Barbecue plates will be available for purchase for $8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Boston butts will be available via pre-sale orders for $30 until Thursday.

The ride is free to participate in, but donations are accepted. All money raised at the event will go to programs to help veterans.

Kickstands go up at 1 p.m. Hurst said he anticipates 25 to 50 bikes to show up for the ride, depending on the weather.

“So far it looks like the weather is going to be good for us,” he said.

The run will be led by Corinth Police Chief Ralph Dance, who is also a member of the American Legion Riders.

Arts, crafts, leather and other vendors are welcome, and there will be no setup or rental fees.

The 10th Anniversary American Legion Riders Freedom Ride is organized by the Legion Riders with assistance from the American Legion and Legion Auxiliary.

(For information about vendor sign-up or pre-ordering a Boston butt call Tina Hurst at 415-9938 or Mike Hurst at 415-9799.)
