Latrobe’s 1st Humble Rumble will feature a vendor show and a drive-in cruiser bike race
Cars, bikes and more than 80 vendors will swarm Latrobe this Saturday.
The city’s first “Humble Rumble” event will begin at 8 a.m. in the Memorial Stadium parking lot. Hosted by the Westmoreland Chapter of the Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education, the day-long event will raise funds for Angel Arms, a Latrobe-based non-profit organization.
The vendor lounge will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the car cruise will take place from noon to 4 p.m. The bike race, which has an entry fee of $10, will begin at 11 a.m., but riders must register at 10 a.m.
Attendees can also enjoy music, food trucks, and a kids’ corner during the Humble Rumble. ABATE Treasurer Valerie Goulding said there was “pretty much something for everyone”.
ABATE organizes various events throughout the year for the benefit of different charities. Angel Arms, a faith-based group that provides support for babies born addicted to opioids, is one of ABATE’s favorite nonprofits, Goulding said.
All proceeds from the Humble Rumble will go to Angel Arms.
Valerie Goulding’s husband, Norman Goulding, who is responsible for ABATE memberships, hopes events like this will change people’s perception of bikers.
“As PA ABATE, we do so much charity because we are committed to helping people,” said Norman Goulding. “It lets people know, ‘Hey, these bikers aren’t so mean and these women after all. “”
Valerie Goulding accepted.
“We’re not just a bunch of fat, bad bikers,” she said. “We do community work.
