There is only one thing you need to know in Rapid City this week. The 79th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally officially begins Friday, but many of the almost 500,000 people will begin arriving early and some will wait to arrive until later in the week.
There are so many events during the rally, that one of our editors compiled a complete list that would take more than a page in the Journal to run them all.
You have free articles remaining.
We will have news about the rally every day. We will have features, news stories, great photos and a daily calendar will post each day online and on our social media platforms.
Check here every day to keep up with what is going at the rally and around town. If you know of a story we need to tell, let us know by emailing the editor at email@example.com.
