2015 Run to the Thunder


2015 AGENDA
Friday, May 22 - Sunday, May 24

Make American Legion Fairfax Post 177 your choice this Memorial Day as the center of your weekend for Rolling Thunder activities!

Once again we are pleased to be joined this year by the American Legion Emblem Sales store, who will set up inside our Post from Thursday through Sunday morning.

This year will feature a ride to the Candlelight Vigil on Friday evening, a ride to Arlington Cemetery on Saturday to lay a wreath by National ALR at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and a weekend full of vendors and barbecue! The US Army Jazz Brass Quintet will also play in the afternoon and early evening on Saturday.  

On Sunday morning, we'll have a Patriotic Ceremony at our Post, and then ride as an organized group of American Legion Riders from Post 177 to the Pentagon Parking Lot.  We'll then continue as an organized group into Washington DC as part of the Rolling Thunder demonstration.  

We look forward to welcoming you in 2015 to our Post!

Last year, we were blessed with wonderful weather for  
Rolling Thunder and our "Run to the Thunder".  We all made it into North Parking, and we were all comfortable!

 Our ALR rides to the Candlelight Vigil on Friday night and to Arlington Cemetery on Saturday went great.  

In all, a great weekend and an outstanding experience.


See you soon!  Follow us on Facebook to Stay in Touch!
