For nineteen years the city fathers, along with local businesses, have tried to revitalize the downtown area of Leesburg for historical and economic prosperity by hosting a Bikefest with a great deal of success. From the start, the city saw a few vendors and about 2,500 to 5,000 bikers buying and rolling up their city streets. It didn't take long for word to spread and the rally to expand, filling up the hotels and restaurants every Bikefest. 250,000 to 500,000 happy bikers flow through the town and local area, enjoying free entertainment and great southern hospitality. It is a mini Daytona on the cheaper side.

Moving from the downtown area to Gator Harley, finding it alive with vendors and free music with lots of people getting the latest products put on their bikes from batwings to chrome, shocks to front ends and tires to LED headlights. This is all happening with the wonderful smell of down-home cooking. Leesburg is on the real side a success story for everyone involved and every rider with a dream, a place to be that is more like home and less like being in an expensive sardine can.
