If you like motorcycles, blues music and BBQ then you will love coming to Fayetteville for the annual Bikes, Blues and BBQ. This event is for all ages. The 10th annual event kicked off today September 23, 2009. This event last year brought over 400,000 people to Fayetteville and the surrounding areas. There are places to ride downtown, in the rolling hills and through the mountains. There is a charity event poker run to raise money for a charity. There will be battle of the bikes event where people have created their own bike and they can see what others have created and showcase their own bike.
There is great music as well, there are local and national known bands, in the day time you can listen for free and at night there are tickets for sale to see groups of your choice. This year there will be Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot and the The Marshall Tucker band to name a few.
What would bikes and music be with out good ol' southern BBQ some of the best you will ever eat! There are BBQ cooking contests to see who can make the best BBQ. There is sampling and you can actually vote on your favorite BBQ on Friday and then on Saturday the real judging begins.
Put all three of these together and you have BBB and if you love this event and love the great fall weather we have here in Fayetteville, Ar you just might want to call it home one day! Fayetteville is the college town in the area, home the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas. A great place to come year round and especially during the fall!
P.S. You don't have to own a bike to get in on all the fun!!! People watching might just be the best entertainment of the whole event!
