Be a part of the
Be a part of the celebration as thousands ride through the streets of downtown Milwaukee celebrating 115 years of freedom before landing at the lakefront for one final hurrah. Be amazed at every turn as riders from around the world wave their hometown flags proudly right here in the birthplace of Harley-Davidson. Riders and the community will line the route to see the beauty and the brawn of customized motorcycles and unique show bikes. The parade kicks off at 45th Street and Wisconsin Avenue, continues east through downtown Milwaukee and lands at the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary and H.O.G. 35th Moto-Carnival at Veterans Park. We’ve welcomed them home, and we’ll send them off in style.

Since its Inception in 2009, Yacht Blast for Kids has granted more than 160 wishes for deserving wish children through Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Generous boat owners take more than 30 wish families out on their yachts and return back to celebrate with the public. There will be a large screen TV broadcasting the game, Packer pools, 50/50 raffles, auctions, bounce houses, face painting and more!
