Biker’s Night Out starts Thursday, July 14
The Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce will kick off the second annual Biker’s Night Out in Blues Alley with a VIP cocktail party on the balcony at the Courtsquare Inn.
The party takes place at 5 p.m., Thursday July 14, the first bikers night out of this year.
Admittance to the cocktail party – food and beverages – is $10 per person. All proceeds benefit the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce. Call 662-252-2943 for advance tickets. Tickets will be available from board members or at the chamber building at 148 E. College Avenue. Tickets are limited to the first 50 who register. Any unsold tickets will be available at the door at Courtsquare Inn.
The cocktail party will substitute for the July Business After Hours event for networking and socializing, according to chamber executive director Rebecca Bourgeois.
“Members are encouraged to bring potential members to the cocktail party to meet our board,” she said. “The event is just a block away from Biker’s Night Out in Blues Alley, so we will go down there, once they get started, and join them.”
Biker’s Night Out begins with the arrival of bikers at 6 p.m. to North Center Street and music at 7 p.m. in Blues Alley. The event is sponsored by the Holly Springs Main Street Association.
