The streets of Fort Saskatchewan were roaring.
 
Roughly 75 motorcycles rode through town on Sunday afternoon for the ninth annual Toy Ride.
 
The event also helps raise money and supplies for the food bank.
 
"Every year the food bank usage goes up by 40 to 50 percent. People need help some times and this is just a way to give back to the community and the people who need it," said organizer Cindy Supervich.
 
It's one of their biggest events of the year for the local club and always brings in a heap of items that go to area families.
 
"The toys are given every year to the Christmas Hamper campaign. People use the food bank through the year but at Christmas time it's a little bit tighter and not everyone has money to get gifts for their kids."
