The American Legion Post 15 in Parkersburg put on a show for all the motorcycle lovers across the valley.

It's all in the effort to support our veterans.

They held their first ever Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet Saturday morning.

People came out to see various motorcycles as they were judged by a panel.

Everyone in attendance also had the chance to vote on their favorite motorcycle.

Post 15 is raising money for the Veterans for Veterans program.

It's also a good way to attract more people to join the legion.

"Well I think it's a great idea that the American Legion is hosting this. I think it's a great job that they do supporting the veterans, the disabled veterans and we can't beat the beautiful weather we're having today," says Retired U.S. Coast Guard, Ray Hollen.

The American Legion riders cruise in was also part of the Motorcycle Show and Swap Meet.

Members of the legion say they hope to continue the event in the near future.
