Thousands of people traveled to Farmington Polo Club to be part of the unique event this weekend. The Dream Ride Experience was a 40-mile motorcycle ride throughout the state, as well as a car show.

"To have this event that raises so much awareness and so much money and is so much fun, the classic cars, the motorcycles and all the support of the community. It has just been a marvelous, marvelous experience," said Carol Millet, whose son is a Special Olympic athlete.

The event has raised over $6.2 million since its inception and continues to raise record numbers.
