Area Information
Port Dover is a town located in Norfolk County, Southwestern Ontario, on the north shore of Lake Erie. Prior to the War of 1812, this community was known as Dover Mills. By 1794 the first settlers, a group of United Empire Loyalists, had established a hamlet known as Dover Mills (named for the English port of Dover). This community was the subject of an American raid during the War of 1812, on May 14–15, 1814. Much of it was destroyed but was later rebuilt.
In 1835, Port Dover was incorporated as a village. 1974, the town was amalgamated into the new city of Nanticoke within the Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk. Wikipedia

Friday the 13th motorcycle event in Port Dover
Typically the event sees over 100,000 riders in the thick of summer. There are all kinds of stories about how Friday the 13th got started, but the truth is that a fella named Chris Simons, a lifelong biker, and owner of a local bike shop, got together with 20 or so other biker friends at “The Commercial Hotel” they had such a killer time that they agreed to meet every Friday the 13th from then on. Motorcycle enthusiasts converge in the community on Port Dover each Friday the 13th, (rain, shine or snow!!) in a tradition that goes back to 1981. Note: I have lived for more than 50 years in the area and finally I went there (2018) to see what it was all about. It was quite impressive to see the crowd and tens of thousands of motor bikes.
