KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Hundreds of motorcyclists are set to ride this weekend to remember the men and women who died while fighting for America.

The 14th Annual Smoky Mountain Thunder Memorial Ride is being held this Sunday.

The 65 mile journey through multiple counties is police escorted.  Organizers say there will be patriotic music, an appearance by an American Bald Eagle, a guest speaker, wreath placements and a 21 Gun Salute at the closing ceremony.

The event’s opening ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at the Sevier County Courthouse. The group ride leaves at 11 a.m., rain or shine. Motorcyclists will then head to Veteran’s Overlook located on top of Clinch Mountain in Grainger County, and that's where the closing ceremony will begin.
