The ACTR volunteer workers were in place early at Knoxville Harley-Davidson to kick off the 10th Annual Anderson County Toy Run "For the Kids".

Cindy, Tammy, Jan, and others worked at selling ACTR T-shirts, hats, pins, and other items.

Would you buy a used car from these folks? How about a chance to win a new H-D 883 Sportster?

The closer it got to 1:00pm the more bikes that appeared.

The Knoxville H-D parking lot was full of bikes and riders from all around the area.

It looks like this year will be another well attended event.

I'll bet you didn't know that Santa rides a Harley.

OK, saddle up and let's get ready to roll!

Fuzzy Claus, Miss Tammy, Clyde and Cammie are ready to go.

Alright, we're on the road with about 135 motorcycles.

From the middle of the pack, it looks like an impressive parade.

A police escort leads the riders down Warehouse Road.

And the final leg of the ride....

up the back road and......

into the parking lot at the Backroads Grill and Pub.

Welcome, riders! We've been waiting for you.

Ellen is here to collect toys and donations.

There is cold beer and a party going on inside.

And outside the line up begins for a bike show.

Looks like there are lots of beautiful bike entries and observers.

Also, plenty of food: smoked pork, BBQ chicken, baked beans, and lots more. Thank you, Jack Terry for the excellent spread.
< --- Boxer shorts!   Very sexy!
"Want 50-50 tickets, big boy?"

Bikers? Party? Hey, we're just proud to be here!

Well it looks like folks are getting set for the auction and there are lots of nice things to bid on as well as some really great door prizes.

Mary and Carla are having a good time.

It looks like the grand prize drawing is getting close.

In just a few minutes, some lucky person will win a 2001 H-D 883 Sportster.

The band, Dejavu, played for the event

and some danced

while others partied,

and partied,

and danced,

and partied.
