A lot of us are going to VA that same weekend.
Check out the VA thread.
I know there are some other events in your area during the summer months. How bout the one in Peoria? I know there are some big name bands, but I can't remember when it is.
A lil further away, for you any way is the Freedom rally in Algona, IA. The weekend of July 4th. That's Always an awesome time. I've been to it for 7 years, even when it was in Humbolt.
June 15th, 16th and 17th
If you love Motorcycles, Music, and Lots of People...
You'll get it all at the Twelfth Annual Sturgis on the River. This is the largest Midwest gathering of motorcycles. The event takes place on the north side of Bierderbeck Dr, on the showgrounds west of the Centennial Bridge and LeClaire Park, Davenport, Iowa. Next to but not in the Mississippi River(We hope)LOL.. Enjoy powerhouse bands 'till midnight each night! The event also features food and vendor booths. Many new vendors will help complete the perfect setting for a perfect weekend
just like to see if any of the B.Ker are going to show up i would like meet some from the area last years logo
