Biker Fest in City

ST. PETERSBURG (SPT) — St. Petersburg’s first Harley-Davidson festival will be held from June 24 to 26. Owners of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in St. Petersburg will take part in a large-scale motorcycle parade and festival along with bikers from all over Russia and abroad, Interfax reported.

The parade will begin on Palace Square on June 25 and proceed through the center of the city to Ploshchad Pobedy and Krestovsky Island. The St. Petersburg government has given its full support to the event and Mikhail Piotrovsky, director of the State Hermitage Museum, allowed the parade to begin on Palace Square, where the Hermitage is located, said Igor Shcherbakov, coordinator of the festival and chairman of the Laura group of companies that is sponsoring the festival.

“Anyone who has a motorcycle is free to take part in the festival and the parade. It is free for everybody,” said Yevgeny Pashin, deputy head of the Harley Owners Group in St. Petersburg. “Today, we have 324 approved requests from groups of motorcyclists and individual bikers on our web site. We are expecting 800 people plus a large delegation from Moscow.”

About 1,500 people are expected to attend the festival in total, Interfax reported.
