It's time for the Leesburg Bikefest 2005 here in Florida. We are expecting about 150,000 bikers to come to town this weekend.
Leesburg Bikefest is officially April 22, 23 & 24th, however alot of motorcyclists arrive a few days prior to that. The party could be starting as early as Wednesday.
All of Main Street and several side streets will be closed to car traffic and be only for motorcycles and pedestrians.
There will be vendors all over with beer, food, and merchandise. Look for the liquor bars, our local friend Mary sets that up and does a bang up job.
I'll be wandering around and have 1000 helmet stickers to give away. I have a few shirts for sale too.
Be aware of the folks in the orange vests. Most of these folks are volunteers and will be looking out for your safety. Big thanks to all of them and Dave O. for his efforts managing it.
Enjoy yourself, but mind the locals. We want them to welcome the motorcyclists back year after year.
