Leather vests covered with patches and pins, military caps and motorcycle boots — there are plenty at Windsor 4 this weekend at the Legends of Route 66 event.
Hosted by Veterans United Arizona, the event is a fundraiser to raise awareness of and financial aid for homeless veterans in Mohave County. VUA president Frankie Lyons has long dreamed of the day when there will no longer be homeless veterans, and she has worked tirelessly to raise funds to create a transition home in Lake Havasu that homeless veterans can call home.
The three-day event draws veterans and supporters with a car show, motorcycle show, Rosie the Riveter competition, arm wrestling, poker run, tattoo contest and more. Two bike build-offs have motorcycle and bicycle enthusiasts competing for the best designs.
Vendors are offering a variety of food and merchandise to event goers. A steady stream of visitors walked from booth to booth today in spite of about 20 mph winds most of the day that kept the large flags on top of booths stiff in the wind.
Today, the Scottsdale Harley Davidson Drill team performed twice. Starting at 1 p.m. today, the audience was wowed by an Eagles Tribute Band and local bands Crosscutt and Sidewynder.
The event continues Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
