It could be another record-breaking Friday the 13th for Port Dover in three weeks time. Norfolk County, Port Dover Board of Trade, Port Dover Kinsmen Club, Port Dover Lions Club and local organizations have plans for the big day well in hand.
For the first time in the long history of Biker Days this June’s event follows two last year that were in September and December … and the next Port Dover Fridays the 13th in warm motorcycle-riding weather are not until May 2016 and July 2018.
Vendors coming for next month’s Biker Day can set-up Thursday afternoon and begin selling Thursday evening from 6 until midnight and all day Friday. Vendors from Norfolk County pay lower fees than vendors from outside the county.
Depending on the weather, Friday the 13th events draw between 200 and 300 licensed vendors.
Changes have been approved for no centreline parking of motorcycles on downtown Main Street from Nelson St. to Clinton St. This change was made to ensure emergency vehicles could travel along the street. Bike parking along the curb on both sides will continue. Centreline parking on Main St. will be permitted from Nelson St. to Clifford St.
Port Dover resident motorists who will be out of town on Friday, June 13 can use their ‘Vehicle Pass’ issued last year, to return home.
Resident Passes can also be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope with a Port Dover address to Resident Passes, PO Box 1203, Port Dover N0A 1N0 or in person with identification showing a Port Dover residence on Monday, May 26 from noon to 2 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand; Wed., May 28 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand; Sat., May 31 from 9 a.m. to noon at Silver Lake Market; Tues., June 3 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand; Thurs., June 5 from noon to 2 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand; Fri., June 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand; Sat., June 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at Silver Lake Market; Tues., June 10 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Powell Park bandstand.
