At the annual Laughlin River Run on April 23-27, nearly 40,000 bikers from around the world will head to the generally sleepy community 90 miles south of Las Vegas and about 280 miles east of Los Angeles. Vendors of motorcycle accessories take over the parking lots of several casinos during the celebration.
A group ride along Historic Route 66 from Kingman, Ariz., to the ghost town of Oatman, Ariz., is also planned.
Country and rock music concerts include such performers as Jason Aldean (April 24) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (April 26). Both shows will be at the new Laughlin Event Center.
The 2002 gathering turned deadly when two rival motorcycle gangs clashed inside Harrah’s Laughlin. Three people were killed.
