If you listen carefully, you can almost hear those roaring engines already.
Awesome Biker Nights will be here before you know it. The charity biker rally will be chock full of loud and shiny motorcycles patrolling the streets of our great Sioux City.
Of course, you don't have to be a biker to enjoy Awesome Biker Nights. There's plenty to enjoy. But more on that next week when we release our spiffy Awesome Biker Nights section. For now, here's a preview of what's to come at this year's festival:
THURSDAY, JUNE 14
It's the kick-off party! How will you know when it's started? Well you should notice all those motorcycles we mentioned earlier parading down Historic Fourth Street at 6 p.m. Afterward there will be a Texas hold 'em poker tournament at ROX & RAILS, and a bit of live music, too.
FRIDAY, JUNE 15
Now the real fun begins. This is when downtown Sioux City will spring to life. Apart from registering for the Miss Awesome contest or bike show, you can enjoy ramp jumpers and other stunt shows at staggered time slots. Headlining the Court Street Stage this night is Jade Monkey; headlining the Main Stage on Friday is the Siouxland band 35th & Taylor.
SATURDAY, JUNE 16
Did someone say Poker Run? It starts early, so get your bikes and register between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday at the headquarters tent/Rooster's Harley-Davidson. Enjoy more stunt shows and ramp jumpers and another night of music. Minnesota rockers City of the Weak will headline the Court Street Stage while Grand Funk Railroad headlines the Main Stage.
