Friday 13th crowd huge


Police at Port Dover, Ontario, are saying there were no serious incidents on Friday despite massive crowds for the Friday the 13th phenomenon.

About 15,000 motorcycle riders swarmed into town on Friday in unusually warm weather for mid-November.

Even organizers didn’t expect such huge crowds. Chris Teskey, a blogger for PD13, said on Twitter that there were "wall to wall people and bikes."

Lousy summer weather in Ontario this year may be partially responsible for the humungous turnout, as riders finally got a chance to enjoy their bikes in sunshine. In November. Friday the 13th returns in August, when crowds 10 times larger than last Friday’s can be expected, if the weather’s fair.
