Welcome to the
40th year of the
Toys For Tots
"The World's Greatest Motorcycle Parade" is an annual event in Chicago on the first Sunday in December.
Each year 40 to 50 thousand motorcycle riders come to Chicago to ride together and donate toys for needy children.
All motorcyclists are welcome to participate in The Parade, provided they meet the following two requirements.
Every rider must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must display a clear, unobscured license plate.
Thanks for your support, and please consider becoming a TFT Parade volunteer. It takes many hands to organize The Parade.
Help is always needed.
