In a summer defined by canceled events, one end-of-season party is still happening — the annual Milwaukee Rally Labor Day weekend at area Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealerships.
The reunion of sorts for Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders draws crowds to Milwaukee ever year. While around 100,000 descend upon the company's hometown in anniversary years, attendance is smaller and less predictable in off years like this one.
In many ways, the Milwaukee Rally 2020 will be just like other years. Motorcyclists will ride into town. Five dealerships will welcome riders with parties, show off fancy new bikes, and host live music to celebrate the company's 117th anniversary.
But these are no ordinary times. The coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,100 in the state, continues to spread. Health officials continue to discourage gatherings of any kind that could spread the virus.
