Hollister council OKs three-day biker rally for 2015

Crowds hang out on the sidewalk to watch motorcyclists cruise down San Benito Street during the Hollister Motorcycle Rally July 5.

The motorcycle rally is officially set for July 3 through July 5 in downtown Hollister.
The city council Tuesday unanimously approved a deal with the Hollister Downtown Association—which is set to front $180,000 in costs such as those for security—to oversee the three-day event this year. The 2015 event will mark the third consecutive biker rally here, but with a new promoter under the helm this time around after Worldwide Dynamics’ recent departure.
The first sanctioned, local rally was in 1997 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the so-called “invasion” of Boozefighters in 1947, an event later portrayed in the 1953 film “The Wild One” starring Marlon Brando.
Look back for more.
