For the 8th year, North Belle Vernon residents will hear rolling thunder on the first weekend in July as the Mon Valley Motorcycle Club hosts its annual bike run on July 6.

This year, event organizers decided that the event will benefit wounded veterans of the Mon Valley. Last year, the group raised $8,500 to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which granted two wishes for Mon Valley children.

Registration on the day of the event will begin at 9 a.m. at Graham Street Park. The Rev. Frank J. DePolo will conduct the blessing of the bikes at 10:30 a.m. with the ride to follow at 11.

There will be two stops during the ride and food provided by Just-A-Tavern at the North Belle Vernon Firemen's Social Hall for riders at the conclusion of the event.

A custom, classic car show sponsored by Minniti Motor Sports will be held along Broad Avenue along with street vendors and food booths.

For the second straight year, there will be live entertainment at the intersection of Broad Avenue and Arch Street with three bands slated to perform throughout the day.

Atlas Forge will take the stage from 1 to 3:30 p.m. followed by the Evan Brown Band from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Wicked will take the stage at 7 p.m. and play the remainder of the evening.

Pre-registration for the event ends Friday. Cost is $20 per person with a pre-registration guaranteeing a T-shirt for the rider. Pre-registrations can be mailed to MVMC, P.O. Box 131, Belle Vernon, Pa., 15012. Please include a shirt size.
