Memorial Day: West Coast Thunder Will Kick Off the Ceremonies at the Riverside National Cemetery

Randy Houser will Perform in a Special Concert to Pay Tribute to Military Service Members who have Dedicated their Lives at Storm Stadium

The Thunder of thousands of motorcycles will fill the air at Riverside National Cemetery next Monday morning. Led by an honor guard, the procession will begin at 9:11 am from the Riverside Harley-Davidson at Indiana Avenue in Riverside. The approximately 7,000 bikers will make the 10 mile trip up the streets to Arlington.

This will be the 20th annual West Coast Thunder Memorial Day ride, and its been getting bigger every year. The riders honored the fallen who gave their lives in the name of freedom. The organization has raised more than $1 Million for the Riverside National Cemetery over the years.

Country Music artist Randy Houser will perform in a special concert to pay tribute to the military service members who have dedicated their lives and given the ultimate sacrifice. The concert is at the Lake Elsinore Storm Stadium following the ceremony at 11 am to benefit the West Coast Thunder Foundation.

Country singer Tucker Beathard, currently headlining his Ride On Tour 2019, is scheduled to open for Houser, who is scheduled to appear at 1pm.

The Flag for Every Hero Organization is also seeking Volunteers Saturday to place Flags on every grave site at Riverside National Cemetery. Volunteers are also needed Tuesday, the day after Memorial Day to help collect the flags from the grave sites.
