Even if a single drop of rain doesn't drop this beautiful Labor Day Weekend, Ocean Drive will thunder with the rumble of a thousand engines.
South Beach Bike Week is here again! And that means a one of a kind "Biker Village" on Ocean Drive between 8th and 10th streets. And the best part of all, it's free!
You can expect bands, DJs, awesome motorcycles, and more contests than you can throw a string of beads at. With that in mind, here's the full schedule for the fest.
6 p.m. to midnight "Kick-Off Party" at The Clevelander: Complimentary motorcycle parking, bike show registration, drink specials, and live music. All access passes cost $25 per person and include discounts on food and drinks at participating South Beach spots.
