MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)-Changes are coming to one of the biggest festivals in Muskegon.
According to the Muskegon City Manager's office, the vendor area of Bike Time 2014 will be consolidated to the Hot Rod Harley Davidson property on Terrace Street.
City officials say festival organizers wanted to consolidate Steel Horse Alley and the vendors at the new farmer's market downtown to appeal to vendors and sponsors, as well as reduce costs. The adjustments were based on a survey of Bike Time participants, which suggested creating a concentrated area for vendors. However, city officials did not agree to the move since they are still trying to determine when the market will be operating.
City officials recommended moving Steel Horse Alley to Morris Avenue from Terrace to Third Streets and Western Avenue from Third to 9th streets, but the city manager's office says organizers opted to move the event to the Hot Rod Harley Davidson dealership instead.
