FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LACONIA, New Hampshire, July 29, 2020: We’re less than a month away from Laconia Motorcycle Week, kicking off August 22nd, with additional restrictions to protect the health and safety of participants. Vendor booths will be limited to non-profit organizations such as Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, the VFW, Laconia Kiwanis Club, and Laconia Rotary Club. Attendees can expect to see less vendors on Lakeside Avenue, with less t-shirt and souvenir offerings as well as food and beverage options. However, nearly all restaurants, bars and hotels will be in full operation and plenty of the originally scheduled events are happening as planned.
While many things will be different with this year’s rally, including the August 22-30 dates, much will be the same. Nearby New Hampshire Motor Speedway will host races all week long, capped off by the 97th Annual Loudon Classic, August 28-30th. The Gypsy tours and charity rides that attract hundreds are happening daily as well as entertainment at local establishments like the NASWA Resort, Patio Garden, Winnipesaukee Marketplace, and Tower Hill Tavern. Some popular events such as the Gunstock Hill Climb have been postponed to 2021. Event changes are posted to LaconiaMCWeek.com daily.
“The emphasis on this year’s Laconia Motorcycle Week will be on safety,” says Deputy Director, Jennifer Anderson. “While we recognize that New Hampshire is faring remarkably better than most in this pandemic, many riders will be coming from out of state and we want to ensure the public we are taking every precaution to protect their safety, such as promoting the use of face masks when not riding, regular sanitization of public surfaces through sanitization experts, Nano Coating Technologies, LLC (NCT NH), and purposely planning for a toned down version of our rally to minimize large gatherings. Expect lots of fun, food and, of course, riding but in a safe environment.”
Stay tuned for event updates over the next several weeks as the rescheduled 97th Laconia Motorcycle Week continues to take shape. Any/all updates will be posted to LaconiaMCWeek.com, through their e-newsletter and on all LaconiaMCWeek social media channels.
