“Individuals who don’t ride a motorcycle are really encouraged to come out for the after-ride festivities,” says Donna Nelson, coordinator of Easter Seals’ group home for people with developmental disabilities in Manchester.

The after party will include a bike show, vendors, a barbecue, live music, prizes, a gift auction, 50/50, a cash bar, on-site poker game and more.

“It’s an opportunity for families of all ages in the community to enjoy a great time while supporting Easter Seals’ mission to provide the best quality of life possible for people with all types of disabilities,” Nelson said.
