Expect to see motorcycles… and lots of them… on Springfield streets for the next few days. The National Bikers’ Roundup comes to the Illinois State Fairgrounds, starting Wednesday. It’s organized by African-American motorcycle clubs and is billed as the largest camping motorcycle rally in America.
Organizers now say more than 40,000 attendees are expected. Virtually all hotel rooms in the area are booked, and officials say the event will mean a big economic boost for the community. The event runs through Sunday.
