Friday the 13th in December was busy day in Port Dover


Good weather brought more bikers than expected for a December event

Port Dover’s 67th consecutive Friday the 13th turned out to be a larger event than anyone had expected for a mid-December day.
Relatively mild weather made last Friday a pleasant day to be out-and-about on the streets of Port Dover.

Port Dover Kinsmen Club member Paul Murphy, reporting on behalf of President Kyle Kitchen, said the service club sold out of T-shirts at their downtown booth.

The Kinsmen and Port Dover Board of Trade arranged for about eight vendors to be located in the municipal parking lot behind Elmer Lewis Parkette.
Hugh Allan Branch Royal Canadian Legion reported that Friday the 13th “was unbelievable, we were jam-packed as soon as we opened the doors!” Peter Caskenette said hot dogs and burgers were available, with music in the afternoon and evening; Joe’s Garage played from 12:30 to 2:30 followed by Route 6 from 3 to 7 pm.
