The Fall Flood Run, one of the oldest and larger motorcycle runs in the country, will take place on Saturday, September 17th when thousands of bikers head down the Mississippi River on Highway 35 in Wisconsin or Highway 61 in Minnesota.
The 57th annual event, which grew out of an effort by bikers to help sandbag in the Winona area during the 1965 floods, continues to be a charity event. Now it raises money for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul.
People can help out by buying wristbands for $10. To buy wristbands and more information, go to https://www.flood-run.com/.
Stops along the route this weekend include Red Wing Barrel House, Buck's Bar and Grill, Minneiska, Nelson Hotel Bar and Grill, Nelson, WI and Rumors on the River - Maiden Rock.
