Christmas in July at Kegel's

With summer in full swing, Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind, but not at Kegel's Motorcycle Store.

Saturday was the first annual Toys for Tots Rockford Motorcycle Parade. It's Christmas in July as these riders take off for a good cause. The parade started at Kegel's, and with a police escort rode through the city, ending up at Anna Page Park.

To take part in the event, all you had to do was bring a new unwrapped toy for a boy or girl to benefit Rockford Marine Corps Toys or Tots.

Upwards of several thousand people took part in the parade.
