Our town has been inundated with motorcycles the past few days for the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ Rally. The event is held downtown in the older part of town, but I can hear the roar of the bikes constantly even though I live far away from the portion of town where the actual event is held.
I went out to run an errand this afternoon and there were bikers everywhere. They were having as much trouble getting around in the heavy traffic as the cars were. At least, our college football game was out of town this weekend or the traffic would have been even worse.
Last year over 325,000 people attended the rally. The event raises money for local charities with over $100,000 donated to 27 charities in 2007.
I hope it was as successful this year. Judging from the sounds, it was very well attended.
