Get our your cameras and tune up your mufflers. If it's the last weekend in August it's time for "Rumble on The River" in the tiny Allegheny River town of Tionesta, Pennsylvania.
Tionesta, population 600, is the county seat of Forest County, the last county in the state of Pennsylvania that has no traffic lights. No wonder bikers have been congregating here every August for the last four years.
Festivities start Thursday night at Seldom Inn, 5 miles south of the town on Route 36, where there is no charge for live music and give-aways are promised, according to the Rumble on the River web site.
If you still hum great Seventies hits like "Can't You See," "Heard It In A Love Song," and "Take The Highway," you'll be kicking yourself if you miss Marshall Tucker Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 to $45, depending on whether you are camping or not.
With two band members deceased and several retired, the current MTB is made up of B.B. Borden on drums, Pat Elwood on bass guitar, Doug Gray handling lead vocals, Marcus James Henerson on flute and keyboard, Stuart Swanland on guitar, and Rick Willis also on guitar:
Events are held at the Wolf Corners Fairgrounds and last from 4 p.m. Thursday to 6 p.m. Sunday.
