STURGIS, Miss. (WTVA) - Hundreds of people came out to Sturgis for the motorcycle rally on Saturday to look at the bikes and listen to live music.

This is year 19 for the rally which was revived 4 years ago.

This event began on Friday, but according to the mayor, many people didn’t stick around due to inclement weather.

Motorcycle groups and charities lined the streets to watch as bikes strolled up and down the center of town.

“And this is just a great atmosphere for the family. I've seen so many people with young children and it just thrills my heart to see families doing things together which matters so much this day and time," said Ned Christian of Tuscaloosa.

The rally will continue into Sunday for all to enjoy.
