Thunder Ride Roars as Thunder Parade Replacement
Published on 09/18/2020 under News The on-again;off-again Fall Ride Thunder Parade will see a few changes this year. The rumble of the motorcycle is almost as iconic as the bike itself. For thirty years now, the Tomahawk Fall Ride has been highlighted by the Friday night Thunder Parade, an evening cruise with upwards of a thousand motorcycles. The 2020 Thunder Parade was originally organized by the Tomahawk Main Street Organization. They decided to cancel this year's downtown street dance and thunder parade applications. Earlier this month, the Northern Wisconsin Riders Group attempted a last minute effort to revive the parade in it's previous form. In a typical year, the city must apply for a waiver from the state because of the parade's impact on Highway 86. With the application coming just two weeks before the event, the Council ultimately rejected the request due to the timing and the need for that state permit. Not willing to see the event go quiet. The Riders Group instead re-branded the event as a Thunder Ride. While it won't include the typical city street closures for the usual parade, the route will take riders on the traditional route. They expect to leave from the Kings Road area at around 6:30 from the 18 mile cruise. We have additional information on the WJJQ Community Calendar.
