Harleys in spotlight Sunday at annual Gate 2 Festival

Date Posted: 2007-11-22

The rumbling feel of a Harley Davidson motorcycle roaring down the street is unmistakable, and when there are hundreds of them, they definitely get your attention.

That will be the case Sunday, with thousands of eyes staring at the big bikes making their way through Okinawa City streets, headed for the annual Gate 2 Festival. The Gate 2 Fest runs noon to 9pm along Koza Gate Street near Kadena Air Base, with hundreds of bikers from across the island gathering to show off their big machines and entertain the crowd.

Opening ceremonies begin at 12:25pm, followed by a half-hour parade at 1:45pm. A bike show tops the events beginning at 2:30pm, with dozens of the Harley Davidson owners giving visitors a close up look at their popular motorcycles. Afternoon festivities, which run to 9pm, include street dancing and arm wrestling.

Live bands will entertain throughout the afternoon. The music will be on stage at the Gate 2 end of the street, facing Moromi. There will also be taiko drummers performing during the festival.

Koza Gate Street, more popularly called Gate 2 Street despite the official name change more than a year ago, will be closed to traffic from noon until 9pm.
