This fall, Georgetown, Illinois plans to host a two day motorcycle event which has been in the works for some time now, according to Commercial News.
Local resident Don Weil has been working on the rally, which he predicts will draw in thousands of bikers and consumers. He plans to hold the event at the city-owned Oubache Park, which is just west of Georgetown, the news source reported.
Although planning has gone smoothly, Weil may have hit a slight speed bump. He wants to acquire a liquor license for the rally, but is worried he may not be granted one. He claims that guests will want to drink while listening to live music, reported the news source.
“If I can’t get a liquor license, I may have to put it on the back burner,” Weil told the news provider. “But, I’m still hoping this thing will happen this year.”
Georgetown’s mayor, Dennis Lucas, said the city cannot give Weil the license since the park is located outside city limits. However, the city attorney claims the license can be issued just for the rally. Officials are still researching the issue.
