KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Each year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, volunteers lay wreaths at the graves of local veterans.

They're taken to the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.

And it takes fundraisers to help pay for them.

The annual Ride for Wreaths is happening Saturday.

The motorcycle ride begins at Horny Toad Harley Davidson in Harker Heights at 875 West Central Texas Expressway.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the ride ends up at the cemetery.

You'll get admission to the ride, a t-shirt and breakfast all for $25.
