GREAT FALLS- Kids in Great Falls had some early Christmas fun at Big Sky Harley Davidson.

The Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) held its annual toy run, which lets riders loose to pick up toys for kids.

In the past, the group worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters, but they expanded their reach this year to include the Boys and Girls Club as well as kids from Great Falls Public Schools’ homeless student program.

Kids enjoyed breakfast, games, and Christmas stories with a visit from Santa Claus.

Fifteen motorcycle clubs got in on the fun and there were plenty of smiles for kids and parents.

“It puts a smile on your face watching them play games,” Pam Howard, H.O.G.’s activities director, said. “When Santa Claus comes in here, they are going to be elated so it’s pretty awesome.”

The event normally has about 30 kids, but this year they had more than 100.

“It wasn’t one person,” Parent Jillian Davis said. “It was a bunch of different people from different chapters in Montana that came together, that decided to do this for us, so as a parent I’m just grateful and feel very blessed.”
