It's that time of the year again!

Wharf Rat Rally!!!!

Usually I stay far, far, away from Digby Nova Scotia Labour Day weekend.

But I guess if you can't beat'em...join 'em!

So we went to the Wharf Rat Rally. 

It's gotten so big it's actually rivaling Laconia bike week in New Hampshire.  Only cleaner. Or so I've been told. I've never been to Laconia. But I guess it gets raunchy there.

They try and keep Wharf Rat family friendly and I have to admit that they do a good job.  I have no issues bringing J. there.

Digby is a sleepy little town with a population of 2152. Then it explodes to upwards of 30,000 to 40,000 people! Yikes!  But it brings around 6 million dollars in revenue in that weekend alone.  It's a boost that the local economy needs drastically.

So without further's Wharf Rat in pictures

Bikes, bikes, far as the eye can see!

People, people, far as the eye can see!!!

No, this isn't one of ours. But my goodness it was cute!
I loved this vest
This wharf rat was guarding his bike!
This bike was for sale and I wanted it!
Dave wanted me to take this for a test drive.  Problem is I can't drive a motorcycle.
This bike was beautiful. I think it was a serviceman's  bike.

Same bike, but the gas tank part.

Have a Blessed Day



  1. I've been riding motorcycles all my life and I've never heard of this... guess I need to get out more.

    The closest I've ever been is just south of Wolfville, but that was twenty years ago.

    Any reason why they chose Digby?

    1. It's been going on since 2005. I believe it was originally founded by people from Digby. Something that this area needs desperately. Check out there website here.

  2. WOW! That's a lot of folks and bikes. Cute pooch with the glasses too :)

  3. I'll bet that is a real boost to the local economy! Glad they keep it family friendly, I hear some of the rallys are pretty rough.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
