A rumble could be heard in Prairie City last Wednesday as hundreds of motorcycles made their way downtown for the first Bike Night. Sponsored by the Whiskey Barrel, the weekly event is already getting buzz as the place to be.
"I have always been a bike night advocate, it's a great way to see friends and meet new ones," Whiskey Barrel owner Travis Cullen said.
Prairie City's Bike Night will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. each Wednesday with a larger event set for 6 to 10 p.m. the third Friday of the month through September.
"Most weeks we will have music, food and drink specials," Cullen said. "On the Friday Bike Night, we will have multiple vendors and big bands playing. Cody Hicks will be playing this month."
If the first Bike Night is any representation of how the event will progress as the summer goes on, it is set to become a destination for those who like to ride the open road. Motorcycles lined the square with groups gathering both at the restaurant and around the park, all enjoying a good time.
"We look forward to bringing more people into this great town and hope the community can enjoy some of the benefits that comes with a successful Bike Night," Cullen said.
