Get your ears ready, because this weekend is going to be a loud one. Starting today, we’ll begin to see bikers from around the country roar in on a variety of types of motorcycles, but mostly Harleys. Some are quite, but most are very loud. At one point, I couldn’t stand the noise, or all the bikers swarming our little town, but having joined the ranks as a “rider”, it is a little easier for me to cope with. Of course, the huge impact it has on our tourism is a huge plus too!
I won’t mention the big name that is behind the event this weekend as they are threatening a lawsuit to everyone that uses their name without permission (if you know Kelly and The Healers, just ask Kelly), but I’m sure you will have no problem finding information about their venues as they’ve actually done a pretty good job circulating information and have a good web site.
I will say that I’m a part of a group that is running a promotion of the Bike Week called Tropic Thunder Events. We are working with venues and vendors that did not qualify to participate in the past with the other un-named promoter, and we are very proud to be part in this growing boost to our local tourism community.
There will be tons to do for locals and tourist, bikers and non-bikers alike. It will be a fun week and as usual, you can find updates as to what is happening here at pcbdaily all week long.
