Port Dover’s First Friday The 13th Of The Decade

It’s a tradition that has been gathering motorcycle enthusiasts since 1981, and the first of the decade will happen Today. It’s Friday the 13th and that means the bikes are going to descend on Port Dover.

Organizers of the event are planning on having some show up, but don’t expect this event to be anything like the summer events, labeling it “Off Season.”

An “off-season” event is planned for Friday, March 13, 2020!  While this day won’t be a large event – nothing like the summertime events – there will be bikers who make a visit to Port Dover.

Norfolk County Ontario Provincial Police on the other hand are warning locals of increased motorcycle traffic in the region and are asking motorists to be extra cautious, especially with signalling turns and checking blind spots.

LOOK twice and save a life!!! Please make sure YOU check your blind spots and be very aware of #motorcycle operators while heading to Friday 13th. @NorfolkCountyCA #NorfolkOPP ^es

They remind motorists that the extra few seconds to check could be the difference between life and death.

This will be the first for the year, with another in November, but the next Summertime event, which typically draws the bigger crowds, won’t happen until August 2021. Have to wait and see if they’ll plan anything special for 40 years.

According to the 2020 event official website, no road closures, organized camping, or special parking requirements are in place. A few vendors will set up shop in the Elmer Lewis Parkette on Main Street. If you want to check in on the event live online, don’t forget the Port Dover Maple Leaf Webcam!

To all the bikers out there! Enjoy your day, be safe, and God bless.
