Route 65 H-D Open House

Tami Conner

Food! Drinks! Prizes! Sale! Fashion Show! Music! What more can you ask for at a Harley Party? On May 31, nearly 3000 bikers stopped by Route 65 Harley-Davidson as they held their Spring Rockin’ Open House. Free lunch had the long line snaking through the parking lot then vendor food and the cold drinks in the beer garden kept everyone happy the rest of the day.

Live music in the afternoon was provided by 2Brickshy from Knoxville, IA. Hairball, an 80’s tribute band from the Twin Cities, rocked the party into the night. If you missed this band check out their website to see their next gig (they’re already booked to return for next years May 30th Open House!). The highlight of the afternoon was the fabulous Fashion Show. Route 65’s own Jon “Ole” Olsen mc’d the show featuring Harley-Davidson motorclothes for the young to the young at heart.

After the show the cash registers where a-ringin’ when customers took advantage of the day long sales discounts! If you had a good time, or missed this great event, mark your calendars for the Fall Open House on September 13th. You don’t want to miss it!

Thanks to Ron Adams and to Chris Earleywine Photography for sharing your pics of the party with us.
