A Todd County warm-weather tradition resumes later this week when the first Elkton Bike Night of the season will be held.
For several years now, bikers from across the region have converged on the historic Elkton Square during the warm weather months each Thursday night.
This year’s season begins this Thursday afternoon around 5 and Todd County Welcome Center Director Deborah Sale says the band “Big Nancy” will be the featured entertainment.
Very large crowds usually show up and vendors offer food in addition to Elkton’s restaurants each week. Ms. Sale says people have come to Bike Night from several neighboring counties and states.
You don’t have to ride a motorcycle to attend, as many people from the area who are just motorcycle enthusiasts show up for the weekly event to fellowship.
Marquita Cassetty is leading the Bike Night Committee this year.
