A North Dakota rally that grew out of a promotion for a new line of Harley-Davidson jewelry will rev up tonight with thousands of riders.

The 16th annual Cavalier Motorcycle Ride-In starts with food and music tonight, but the main event is Saturday. Registration for a fun run motorcycle ride Saturday will begin at 8:30 a.m. Kickstands go up at 10 a.m. A voluntary $10 entry fee for the ride will entitle the participant to a bandana and a chance to win prizes and cash. Ride proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

A cash raffle Saturday will include a $1,000 cash prize, two $500 cash prizes, and four $250 cash prizes. A portion of the proceeds for the raffle will go to local charities and the event. Tickets will be $10 apiece and you need not be present to win. Winning tickets will be drawn at 5 p.m., according to the Grand Forks Herald.

A local church will host a children’s area and the Cavalier Fire Department will host a pancake and sausage breakfast from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

The first Cavalier Ride-In was a promotion for a local jeweler and other merchants to showcase Hillman’s Jewelry’s Harley Davidson jewelry collection. It brought in about 60 people.
