Discovery Channel is launching a three-part miniseries about the creation of the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle company. In advance of the series, Discovery is hosting a special preview in celebration of The American Legion’s 2016 Legacy Run kickoff.
A screening of Discovery Channel’s original “Harley and the Davidsons” will be shown Aug. 20 outdoors on a big screen at Post 64 in Indianapolis. Hundreds of motorcyclists are expected to attend the free public event, which includes the nearly 500 Legion Riders participating in the 11th annual motorcycle ride benefiting the Legion’s Legacy Scholarship Fund.
Upon arrival at the post, all Riders and motorcycle enthusiasts will be invited to roll across a Discovery Channel themed blue carpet on their motorcycles for a photo opportunity. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
The event is from 6:30-8:45 p.m. at Post 64, 601 S. Holt Road. Motorcycles will be parked in order of arrival; special parking will be available for trikes. Car parking and limited seating will be available nearby for individuals wishing to attend. View and download a flyer for the event here.
“Harley and the Davidsons” will premiere at 9 p.m. Sept. 5 on the Discovery Channel.
The Legacy Run kicks off Aug. 21 from Post 64 and ends in Cincinnati for the Legion’s 98th national convention. Over the course of five days, the Riders will travel 1,300 miles through seven states to raise money and awareness for the fund, which provides college scholarships for the children of parents who died while on active-duty military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, and for the children of post-9/11 veterans with a disability rating of 50 percent or higher.
Together, we change lives for Veterans, their families and their communities.
