Honor Flight to benefit from Vintage Motorcycles Days in Palisade, May 21-22
“Vintage” is classified as 25 years old or older, according to the Western Colorado Vintage Motorcycle Association, so expect to see models from 1986 or earlier at the Vintage Motorcycle Days.
The third annual show will be Saturday and Sunday, May 21–22, in downtown Palisade and is a fundraiser for Western Slope Honor Flight. All proceeds from Motorcycle Days will benefit the nonprofit organization that takes World War II veterans to Washington, D.C.
Gates to Motorcycle Days will open at 9 a.m. and the motorcycle display will end at 4:30 p.m. There will be live music by The Desert Flyer Band from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Vintage Voltage from 2–5 p.m.; and Ofay Soul will perform after the 5 p.m. award presentation, from 6–9 p.m.
A silent auction also will benefit the Western Slope Honor Flight. There will be T-shirt sales, the National Guard portable rock climbing wall and Willie Wanna Jump House for the kids. Grand Junction Police Department will be on hand, with representatives from the motorcycle patrol to answer questions and talk about motorcycle safety.
On Sunday, there will be a scavenger hunt in which participants collect pictures from various points of interest around the Grand Valley. Organized rides also are scheduled.
