For 25 years now, bikers from across the country have rolled into Washington, D.C. to rally in support of veterans and those missing in action.
The annual Rolling Thunder event takes place the Sunday before Memorial Day, and residents and visitors should expect to hear revved up motorcycles engines throughout the weekend.
More than 400,000 people are expected to convene Sunday at the Pentagon for the main rally. Arlington Police will close Washington Boulevard from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday, between I-395 and the Memorial Bridge.
Drivers should also expect road closures on Fairfax Boulevard Sunday morning for the Ride of Patriots, a precursor to the main event.
