My First Friday the 13th in Port Dover

Friday, June 27, 2014 5:50 PM by Fatima Chleilat

Motorcycle lover or not, this event is can't-miss.

This month marked the 23rd annual Friday the 13th, so naturally Port Dover was packed with motorcycles of all types and motorcyclists from all walks of life. A tradition originally started by Chris Simmons who had a great time with his 25 biker friends in 1981 on a Friday the 13th.

Enjoy great meals and one-of-a-kind shopping on this two-day getaway.

Itinerary highlights: fabulous food, antique stores, art galleries, a winery and a lavender farm.
