The Granville Fall Celebration will feature the 10th annual Ralph Maddux Motorcycle Show on Saturday. The show began in 2011 to honor the late Ralph Maddux, who had one of the first motorcycle shops in Tennessee.

Maddux was raised in the Granville community and served in World War II. He operated a Harley Davidson shop in Cookeville for many years and lived his entire life in Granville.

The show will feature the following classes: Sportster, Touring Bikes, Trike Sidecar, CYNA-FXR-FX, Antique-Pre 1984, Road King, Softail, Custom and Metric. There will be three place trophies in each class, largest organized ride to show, People’s Choice and Best of Show.

Motorcycles can be entered from 10 a.m. to noon at the show field in the heart of Historic Granville. The registration fee is $10 with the show sponsored by Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson, Shipper’s Collison Repair and Shipper Trailer Rental & Sales.
