The Burlington City riverfront will again be the site of Burlington Bike Night, an evening of entertainment and fellowship enjoyed by area motorcycle enthusiasts.
The event, sponsored by the Greater Burlington Chamber of Commerce to benefit the Burlington City FOP lodge, features a mellow atmosphere for anyone who rides or appreciates motorcycles.
Over 8,000 motorcycles and 15,000 attendees marked the 2009 event.
Event chairman and Burlington City police officer Todd Viereck said, "Our 2009 event broke all attendance records by a wide margin. Best of all, we had tremendous participation from the biker community. Everybody really seemed to be enjoying the great weather and camaraderie."
This year’s motorcycling event will fill the Burlington City Riverfront Promenade with activity that includes a large food court, official beer garden, motorcycle displays, live classic rock music and motorcycle fashion and craft vendors.
One of the New Jersey/Philadelphia area’s largest ride-in bike shows, featuring custom and street motorcycles, is an annual feature of the event.
Frank DiVenti, general manager of Mills Harley-Davidson, the event’s presenting sponsor commented, "We’ve sold thousands of bikes since we opened in 1958, and each year it seems like they all come back to Burlington. A lot of old friends reconnect at Bike Night and everyone seems to make new friends. This is a great event."
Dubbed "Thunder of the River," Burlington Bike Night is in its sixth year and has grown in size with each event. The presenting sponsor is Mills Harley-Davidson, a Burlington City, New Jersey motorcycle dealership since 1958.
