The annual GoldWing Light Parade set to raise funds for Scarborough RNLI

Lifeboats News Release

The annual GoldWing Light Parade, which raises thousands of pounds for Scarborough RNLI, returns to the seafront on Saturday 10 September.

From 10am until 4pm, dozens of GoldWings will be parked on Foreshore Road, with trikes displayed on the West Pier.

From 8pm, the bikes will parade along the north and south bays, to the delight of thousands of spectators who now turn up especially to see this illuminated spectacle.

The parade will be followed at about 9.30pm by a fireworks display on the south beach.

The Honda GoldWing is the world’s top touring motorcycle, say the organisers.

All GoldWing owners, individuals or members of any club, can take part in this spectacular end-of-season event. They can just turn up on the day and register.
