HHFA Event; MD-5 – ALL CHAPTERS; MILITARY BOWL PARADE
December 28, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am
Join Hogs and Heroes National, and MD5, many other chapters and your HnH brothers and sisters on Dec. 28 at City Dock in Annapolis MD where we will once again lead the prestigious Military Bowl Parade. The Budweiser Clydesdales will be there along with Miss Maryland, marching bands from all over the USA, antique cars, youth groups, and many other civic organizations. You will have the privilege of meeting several medal of honor recipients. It is a great honor that we are again invited to lead this parade.
We will meet at 7:30 AM at Renegade Classics in Edgewater, with KSU at 8:15 am traveling to the foot of Main Street adjacent to ego alley. The streets will be closed at 9 AM and the parade will start at 9:30 AM. The Parade will take us about 45 minutes and we should be done by 10:15 am. We will enjoy a meal together at the double T diner on West Street at Solomon’s Island Road, immediately following the parade.
Please bring any American flags you have to fly from the back of your bikes. The slow speed of the parade will allow you to fly even an inexpensive 3X5 American flag with no problem
This is great publicity for Hogs and Heroes, and we often appear in photographs in the newspaper the next day. We really hope you will join us for a really fun event!
Description from Military Bowl folks:
The Budweiser Clydesdales are back to lead the way as we launch another exciting bowl season in Annapolis.
Last year’s event brought a fantastic crowd to City Dock and along the downtown brick streets, cheering on Medal of Honor recipients, team bands and mascots, AAYFA championship teams and many more as they made their way to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
After the parade, join us in the Official Military Bowl Tailgate in the Blue Lot on the west side of the stadium. Admission is free to both the parade and tailgate.
The parade route travels up Main Street, around Church Circle to College Avenue, then turns left on (inbound) Bladen Street and continues along Rowe Boulevard before taking a left on Taylor Avenue and concluding at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
The parade is expected to take about 1 ½ hours for all 60-plus units to move from City Dock to the stadium. Roads along the route will be closed beginning at 9:00 AM and will open on a rolling basis as the parade progresses to the stadium.
Please be aware that no parking will be allowed at City Dock or along Main Street.
