Yesterday evening Monday January 7, 2013 The Hollister City Council voted and approved the return of the famous motorcycle rally this year. The event was cancelled in 2009 because it lost hundred of thousand dollars that required city funding. The reborn Hollister Rally will be held July 5 & 6, 2013 and Worldwide Dynamics Inc. (Contact Mark Cresswell 561 214 1137 or firstname.lastname@example.org) is named the rally management company. Worldwide Dynamics Inc is well known to the industry for organizing vendors and sponsors at Leesburg Bikefest, in Laconia, in Sturgis and at Bikes Blues and BBQ.
The American biker tradition began on the July 4th weekend of 1947. For years, an annual motorcycle event took place at Bolado Park on the Fourth of July. In 1947, some bikers went into town for drinks and got loud. The media exaggerated the story painting bikers as being all rowdy , drunk and destructive. The movie “The Wild One” with Marlon Brando was inspired by the 1947 incident. The 50th Anniversary of the rally was celebrated downtown Hollister in 1997. During the cancellation years 2009-2012 thousands continued to visit Hollister on July the 4th with local company Corbin Seats organizing its own event and bikers having a good time at the famous Johnny’s Bar and Grill.
