Events for the Rolling Thunder Memorial Day Celebrations occurred on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Veteran's Memoral Park on Merritt Island. The annual rally honoring American prisoners of war and troops missing in action began Friday afternoon with biker registration, a blessing of the bikes and a candlelight vigil. Activities continued Saturday with registration, food, entertainment and vendors.

Brevard Veterans Memorial Center on Merritt Island is located on the waters edge at Sykes Creek and operated in partnership with the Veterans Memorial Center, Inc., this 2.63-acre community river park houses a Veterans Memorial Museum. A 335 ft lighted boardwalk and benches along the waterfront invite scenic viewing and fishing. There is military equipment scattered all around the property.

Bands

On Saturday four bands played all day. I was present for two bands. Seed and Vintage played during the evening. Seed is a hard core band. I did not video any of there songs but they were awesome. Well worth going to see.

Vintage is the band that played many years at the Brevard ABATE toy run (now defunct). They are a fantastic band, but I will let you make that judgement call. Just make beleive you drank a 6 pack while listening! The following are Video files of Vintage (Not complete songs but good). Wait for them to load before U click on play:

Rolling Thunder XXXIII Run

Sunday was the run. I only observed two Triumphs during the run although saw several Triumph fans on your Harleys!! Did not see it on the Sunday or Monday News (channel 6), not a mention of it! Guess 2k bikers (my estimate) that gather to honor fallen soldiers does not meet their agenda! No mention of the unoffical run in DC either.
