Riding enthusiasts agree some of the best motorcycling in America is in the Ozarks.
The Mountain View Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 16th Annual Mountains, Music, and Motorcycle Rally this weekend. The chamber has taken into consideration the seriousness of COVID-19 and the health of our visitors. The event plan was approved by the Arkansas Department of Health, and the chamber urges everyone who attends to practice good hygiene.
Wash hands often, use the hand sanitation stations, and wear a mask, if possible.
Friday’s events will include shopping on the square, a poker run hosted by Sons Of Thunder and live music downtown starting at 7 p.m.
Saturday events will kick off at 8 a.m. with the start of a Motorcycle Poker Run, Car Show and Bike Show. Opening ceremonies begin at 10 a.m.
New for this year will be a firetruck pull, pitting teams of law enforcement officers, firefighters, and first responders to see who can move a fire truck the furthest using just pure muscle. Also, back for the second year is beard contest. Contestants will have a chance to try their ability to show off the best beard around.
Saturday evening will end with two more high-energy bands; The Whiskey Ramblers and The Melodikats.
Mountains, Music, and Motorcycles is still operated and managed by volunteers. The Mountain View Chamber of Commerce sponsors this event and all funds raised pay for the event. It is a major fundraiser for multiple charity groups through the year.
All activities are centered on downtown Mountain View.
