Please note: The Steel Horse Rally Thunder Through the Valley Motorcycle Parade is a "moving" tradition that has grown larger each year. The parade is open to all kinds of motorcycles and is free to all participants. Donations to the Steel Horse Rally Inc. charity are appreciated. Larger 3-wheeled vehicles such as Slingshots may ride in the parade, however, for safety reasons, we ask that these vehicles ride behind all of the two-wheeled motorcycles.

The parade goes underneath a huge American flag displayed between two large Fort Smith Fire Department firetrucks.* During the parade, some streets and driveways will be blocked off, so please follow the instructions of law enforcement officers that will be directing traffic.

The Steel Horse Rally Thunder through the Valley Motorcycle Parade is dedicated to "All Who Serve" and honoring those who protect our country and our community. No political campaigning or advertisements allowed in the parade.

 The Parade Route: The parade will turn right onto Riverfront Drive. The parade will turn left onto A St., turn right on 13th St. and turn right onto Garrison Ave. where thousands of people will greet the riders. (Route may be subject to change). 

*Weather permitting.
