The annual Armadillo Motorcycle Rally is coming back to Leesville’s Main Street amidst a roaring of engines all throughout the downtown historic district.

Having started three years ago, the annual Armadillo Motorcycle Rally is set to return this year, this time alongside the Louisiana Soap Box Derby State Championship for a day of fun-filled, family entertainment.

“It really is a day where we can all come together for a number of different reasons,” City Planner Grant Bush said. “This is a way to support Main Street, as well as to give people a chance to see some wonderful motors in action. More importantly, it’s a way to bring the community together for a jam-packed day.”

The event will showcase a bike show, in which Leesville’s motorcycle population will be able to show off their stylistic rides in conjunction with the soapbox derby races taking place on the north side of 3rd Street.

Henry Reggans Jr. and his band will be playing during the event, and attendees will have the opportunity to visit food and merchandise vendors throughout the event.

In addition to the Derby, motorcycle rally and car show, the event serves as a Breast Cancer awareness event, enlightening attendees about what they can do to help fight back against the disease.

The event will be taking place on Saturday, October 20, beginning at 8 a.m.

Entrance fees are $25 for the bike show and the motorcycle rally. Registry for these events is set to begin at 8:30 a.m., while registration for the Soap Box Derby will begin at 8 a.m.
