OCEAN SHORES, Wash. - They are already arriving and the sound of engines has been reverberating throughout the afternoon. The annual Sun and Surf Motorcycle Run brings over 90 vendors, bands, bar, beer, a tattoo contest, an auction, a parade, a poker run, a bonfire, bike show, and concerts all benefitting various charities including our North Beach PAWS and food bank.
Executive Director of the North Beach Chamber of Commerce Patricia Wright tells us planners are anticipating over 4500 bikers will attend this event which runs from Thursday to Sunday. The Chuck Williams memorial parade - the parade of motorcycles - is scheduled to leave Hoquiam at 9:15 and will parade through Ocean Shores on their way to the Convention Center.
There is an extensive website laying out the events and the schedule at http://sunandsurfevent.com/printschedule.html. Most bike related activities will be on Chance a la Mer (be aware of street closures) or the Convention Center parking lot. Concerts will be held in the convention center and all events for the entire weekend are included in the $20 price of the wristband donation.
