Roar attendees travel to Erie for the bike celebration

Local News

Roar on the Shore is a go-to destination for riders and visitors every year from all over the US.  

Scott Shaw of Jamestown, NY says, “I just love it.  I love the people, I love the bikes, I love slapping the kids ‘give’ when you drive by.  It’s a great time.”

Bill Spagnola came in from Snohomish, Washington and he says this is his 8th year coming to Roar on the Shore.  “We watch the bands and shop and just socialize,” says Spagnola, “I have a lot of friends who come out.”  He says he’s been to dozens of other motorcycle festivals, but Roar is toward the top of the list.  His advice to new-comers is to, “spend time doing… different Roar on the events; enjoy that.  Ride to the Peninsula; enjoy that.  And going to New York State, there’s a car show there.”

But, some don’t travel as far to take part in the celebration. Lisa Braden, of Kingsville, OH, says, “This is year number six.  We love it…  We do the parade every year and check out the bikes and stuff.”

Riders tell us they keep coming back to the Roar on the Shore because of a variety of things Erie has to offer, and first time attendees tell us they’ll be back.
