Organisers are revving up with just days to go until Harley Davidson motorcycles descend on the town on Saturday, July 13.

The City of Brechin and Area Partnership and Brechin Retailers have been busy preparing e for the second ‘Harley Davidson in the City’ event.

There will be a motorcycle ride out at midday on Saturday, starting from the front courtyard of Brechin Castle and passing through the centre of the city before heading out to tour the sights of Angus returning to Brechin via Aberlemno and Netherton Cottage, the ancestral home of the Davidson family.

On their return to Brechin the bikers will park up and display their bikes in Clerk Street where visitors will find entertainment and live music.

Much of the centre of Brechin will be pedestrianised for the day to allow visitors to enjoy the entertainment and atmosphere in safety.

The streets will feature trade and catering stands and once again the entertainment will be provided by The Ballroom Gits, who are back by popular demand on the stage in Swan Street.

A coffee morning and table sale is also taking place in the City Hall from 10 a.m.

Last year an estimated 2500 people visited the event and it is hoped that the people of Angus will attend to welcome the Harley Bikers who are travelling from all over the country and beyond.

The bikers commended the people of Brechin and Angus for their warm welcome last year, and that positive response has driven the organisers to repeat the event again this year.

As part of the entertainment for the visiting bikers, Bons Balls, Estrella and Guttergodz are also performing in the City hall between 7.30 p.m. and midnight.

Tickets cost £10 and are available to over 18’s only.

The organisers are also still looking for anyone who would be willing to assist with marshalling at the event.
