SIMPSONVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Upstate motorcyclists gathered for a D-Day memorial service and a charity ride to benefit local World War II veterans.

The memorial service at Simpsonville's Heritage Park featured a 21-gun salute, an honor guard and a drill team presentation. The Greenville Pitch Hitters sang the national anthem, and the Greenville Pipes and Drums performed.

Afterwards, hundreds of bikers lifted their kickstands and took part in the annual The Honor Flight Memorial Ride.

The bikers rode from Heritage Park to Harley Davidson of Greenville, on Chrome Drive, where the celebration continued.

The ride raises money to benefit the Honor Flight program, which flies groups of World War Two veterans to Washington D.C. each year to visit the World War II memorial.
