America's 9/11 Ride, Dog Fest and Outdoor Movie This Weekend

Looking for something to do this weekend in town? Patch has complied several events going on in East Windsor, Cranbury and Hightstown.
Around 1000 motorcycles will pass through downtown Hightstown on Saturday as part of the America's 9/11 Ride. Last year supporters lined the streets with American flags and signs, encouraging riders as they honored those lost in the 2001 terrorist attacks.
