For the 25th year, Boswell’s Harley-Davidson is partnering with the MNPD for Saturday’s (tomorrow’s) Annual Toy Parade, a significant fundraising event for the police department’s Christmas Basket Program benefiting needy Nashville families.The toy parade this year will stage outside First Tennessee Park (Sounds Stadium) on Junior Gilliam Way. Registration begins at 9 a.m. The ride starts at 11:30 a.m. and will travel through Bicentennial Mall to Rosa Parks Boulevard, east on Broadway to 2nd Avenue North, circle Nissan Stadium, and finish at Boswell’s Harley-Davidson on Fesslers Lane for an after party and cookout with live music by TKO.

“Middle Tennessee is loaded with great and caring motorcycle riders,” said Bubba Boswell, President of Boswell’s Harley-Davidson. “This event shows the community how we contribute to a very worthy cause. We are proud that our organization has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years, making it a primary funding element of the Christmas Basket Program.”

Participating riders are asked to bring a new toy and/or make a cash donation. The money and toys will be used to support the police department’s annual Christmas Basket Program, now in its 58th year, through which police officers deliver food and toys to needy Nashvillians on Christmas Eve morning. Hundreds of men, women and children comprising more than 200 underprivileged families will receive surprise gifts of food and toys this year.

All riders and brands of motorcycles are welcome to take part in Boswell’s Toy Parade. Check out this video from last year’s event.
