HA merchandise barred from Friday 13th at Port Dover

Outlaw biker gangs and their merchandise are no longer welcome at Friday the 13th motorcycle rallies in Port Dover. Norfolk council approved a ban on vendor’s permits for motorcycle clubs with a criminal history Tuesday night. This means Hells Angels are no longer able to sell hats, T-shirts and other items in Port Dover. Cops shared a long list of concerns. An OPP tactical unit was stationed beside the Hells Angels display during the well-attended rally last year. Friday the 13th had humble beginnings in 1981 as a one-night party.

It has since sprawled into a three or four-day event requiring hundreds of police officers.
