Memorial Day Bike Ride in Paris Texas

Today, Bikers for Christ, Vietnam Vets, Patriot Guard Riders, Fukowee, Paris Independent Bikers, and many many other local biker chapters took part in the annual Memorial Day Bike Ride through Paris Texas. They all met up at Home Depot at 10:30 this morning, and from there, rode on to the World War II Memorial in downtown Paris. They paid their respects, the event organizer spoke, wreaths were laid, and everyone bowed their heads in prayer. The local law enforcement allowed the caravan of bikers and supporters to ride through town in a large impressive display of respect for Memorial Day and all those that have passed away, and have served their country.

The second stop on the Memorial Day Bike Ride was downtown at Culbertson Fountain, where wreaths were laid and prayers were said, for all of the soldiers that Paris has lost over the years. The final stop was out at Love Civic Center, where the Red River Valley Veterans Memorial is to be built. The local law enforcement was thanked for all their hard work and service. It was a beautiful and touching moment, on an impossibly sunny day. The Paris Independent Bikers was also thanked for organizing this massive event.

Local biker chapters stuck around over at the Pavilion, for food, bike games, local vendors, the bike show, live music, and all around camaraderie was felt and shared on such a special day. What was most touching was all the local residents paying their respects near and away from the road. Some drivers even pulled over, and put their hands over their hearts, to help show the Memorial Day Bike Ride caravan how much they appreciate what they do, and the purpose they are serving.
