19th Annual Hot Harley Nights

Bookmark and Share

The sound of engines revving was heard all throughout Sioux Falls this week as thousands of motorcyclists and participants took part in the annual Hot Harley Nights.

"We are very fortunate to live in a wonderful community that really supports things like this and great causes comes out. Whether you have a motorcycle or not there's something for everybody to do," said CFO of J&L Harley Davidson, Char Roth.

This year's event, which runs through Sunday, is a tradition in Sioux Falls. It brings thousands of people together to help raise awareness and support for children with life-threatening conditions.

All of the proceeds from the weekend benefits Make-A-Wish South Dakota.

Roth said, "Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses...it's really remarkable what it does to really make the kids you know feel better, give their families some hope, and enjoy some good times and great, great memories together."

The activities of the whole event have been packed from the kick-off on Thursday, to a family night, bike show, silent auction, and a 6.7 mile parade through Sioux Falls.

The parade included a few first-timers as well.

Participant, Mike Lerew said, "This is our first time coming down to the Hot Harley Nights...who doesn't want to come and enjoy bikes and good food and good music? It always goes to a good cause."

Hot Harley Nights will exceed the $150,000 mark for this year and will reach over $2 million since they began 19 years ago.

If you haven't been to Hot Harley Nights yet, there is still a chance to join in on the final activities on Sunday.
