BRAZIL, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The city of Brazil, Ind. announced Wednesday the tenth annual Mayor’s Ride, a motorcycle ride and fundraising event benefiting the Clay County Humane Society, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 2 and that sponsors are needed for the event.
Registration for the event is already underway at the Brazil City Hall located at 203 E. National Ave. Riders will be able to register the day of the event starting at 2 p.m. on Oct. 2 and lasting until 3 p.m. Riders will then leave city hall at 3 p.m. and food service begins at 6 p.m. at the Brazil American Legion located at 10 N.
