The 6th-annual Dixie Thunder Run began the day on Saturday with bikers from all over the U.S. arriving at Chunky River Harley Davidson.

Bikers were there to support wounded soldiers and their families. The proceeds will go to First Response, a military relief organization that covers all five branches of the military.

"Down here riding my harley at Chunky River, groups are coming thru and supporting the troops overseas and the families," local servicemen David Kimbrel said.

The festivities continued on Saturday evening with a concert at the Lauderdale County Ag Center. There were performances by Darryl Worley and Blackjack Billy. Worley said he just wanted to do whatever he could to help the soldiers.
