The Emerald Coast Harley Owner’s Group (HOG) Chapter 3605, sponsored by Emerald Coast Harley Davidson, will make their 37th annual Toys 4 Tots Motorcycle Run on Nov. 13. Proceeds will benefit the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center and Children in Crisis.

All motorcycles are welcome to participate in the run. Entry fee is $10 per participant and a new toy or gift card.

Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. at Sam’s Club parking lot in Fort Walton Beach. The motorcycle parade starts at 11 a.m. from Sam’s Club and ends at the Niceville Mullet Festival site. There will be food trucks donating a portion of their sales, as well as bike hi-low games where riders can win prizes donated by local businesses. Both the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center and Children in Crisis will have booths at the Mullet Festival site where people are encouraged to drop off toy donations.

Parade and festivities at the Mullet Festival site will begin at 11 a.m. and include music, food, hi-lo games, motorcycle contests and more.

Don’t own a motorcycle? You can still help. Join everyone at the Mullet Festival site with a toy donation, or drop it off at the Toy Box located at the Emerald Coast Harley Davidson dealership at 788 Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach. Donations can also be given to any of the HOG chapter members.
