Pumping Out Rider Quotes

MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) had put this event together for the past 25 years. The weather held out and the venue interesting! This was the first time I had ever been to Bethlehem, PA. I knew it was a steel town, but never thought an arts center would be located inside of the steel industrial area. The show was held in a place called the Steel Stacks. It was an abandoned steel mill that had been converted to an art center. It was very cool sight to see. Large stacks filled the sky with a powerful aura. From what I was told, the mill was closed in the 80's and Sands Casino had purchased the grounds. A large stage was built with the mill as a backdrop. The stacks are lit up at night. That night they were orange for H-D colors. The threat of rain was present in the morning, but the day was beautiful. Incredible Larry entertained the crowd and live music filled the grounds. The ArtsQuest building was an incredible building holding the dealer registration and various events. The food was even pretty darn good. A great crowd came for a charitable purpose. The night capped off by a performance from the Bacon Brothers (Kevin Bacon's band). If you were there, share your comments!
