It is held in Washington DC over Memorial Day weekend and each year several thousands of motorcycles ride from the Pentagon to the Lincoln Memorial.
You don’t have to be a biker or a former member of the Armed Forces to participate in this rally. Just patriotism. 3 years ago I was present in Washington during the Rolling Thunder event and I can attest how emotional spectators get when they see the procession of motorcycles. Scheduled events is as follow.
