Cape Bike Night to feature three stages
The city is halfway through its Cape Bike Night season, with its third event set for Saturday.
Cape Bike Night will take place from 5 to 10 p.m. along Southeast 47th Terrace in the South Cape. Hosted by the Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department, it will feature live entertainment on three different stages, vendors that specialize in motorcycle gear and accessories and friendly activities.
The festivities are free and open to the public.
Todd King, special events coordinator, said it is the city’s eighth season for holding the event.
“It continues to grow and grow and grow,” he said.
An estimated 15,000 to 18,000 people show up to enjoy the events.
“We’ll have over 50 vendors selling Bike Night attire and accessories,” King said.
There will be three stages set up, with a band scheduled to perform on each.
Located at Southeast 11th Place and Southeast 47th Terrace, the first stage will feature musician Stephen Peares, from the band Ratt. There is a $5 cover charge for the show.
The second stage, at Southeast Eighth Court and Southeast 47th Terrace, will showcase Maiden Cane. Behind the Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery, the third stage will have Candlebox. Both are free.
King noted that it is the second time that Nevermind will host a band for the event.
The Harley Davidson Slow Bike Race Arena will offer attendees a chance to participate in fun activities, like the slow bike race. With separate races for men and women, it tests slow rider skills.
“We have various competitions they can do on their motorcycle,” he said.
Registration will be held from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Winners of the slow bike race will receive a $100 gift card to the Six Bends Harley-Davidson.
“We have food and drinks,” King said.
“It’s just a great night to come out and see all the cool designs and cool designers and the custom designs,” he added.
