POMEROY — Bikers filled the Pomeroy Levee parking lot this weekend for the 37th Annual Meigs Memorial Run. The event is considered the largest motorcycle event in Southeastern Ohio.

The festival atmosphere brings motorcycle enthusiasts from across the area together for this event that begins with a bike blessing on Friday evening and culminates on Sunday with a Memorial Run parade through Meigs County.

The weather was perfect when kick stands went up at 1 p.m. as the group left the Pomeroy parking. This year it was estimated that over 500 bikes took part in the parade.

The weekend was filled with activities that included music, food, and games. Proceeds go to purchase Christmas gifts for underprivileged children that live in Meigs County. In 2021 the group shopped for 160 children.
