The Toys for Tots Motorcycle Paradeis set to roar down Western Ave. this Sunday and should reach the Roscoe View area sometime around 10:30 a.m. The parade, which begins at 83rd St. and Western Ave. at 9:30 a.m., travels north on Western Ave. to Foster Ave. and takes about 90 minutes for the group to travel from start to finish.

Over 20,000 cyclists participate in the ride, but so traffic can cross Western Ave., the parade is broken up into groups of 5,000.

To participate, each rider must contribute at least one toy to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots Program.
