This weekend is truly the start of the summer season here in the Land of Enchantment.

Our season kicks off each and every year with the roar of engines cruising through town (and the surrounding towns in the Enchanted Circle), with over 20,000 bikers participating in the festivities.

South Dakota may have Sturgis, but every year Taos County hosts one of the oldest motorcycle rallies in America.

For the past three decades, the Annual Red River Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally has rocked the area for a five day long, weekend.

On Monday morning, the bikers ride to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire before heading back home.

The event is held annually from Wednesday-Monday over Memorial Day weekend.

Have a great weekend everyone, I’ll see you back here on Wednesday!
