LACONIA - The 92nd annual Laconia Motorcycle Week officially begins Saturday at 8 a.m.
Governor Maggie Hassan and the Department of Economic Development welcome the annual tradition that brings riders and an estimated $100 million into New Hampshire.
Laconia's rally is the oldest in the country and it remains among the top three in the country, bringing upwards of 350,000 enthusiasts each year.
Tourism officials consider it one of the most lucrative times for the summer season.
Small businesses who rely on the influx to keep them afloat during the year say they welcome the festivities with open arms.
"It's a great event," said Anthony Santagate owner of Tower Hill Tavern. "Every year we get 200 thousand plus people every year and it's a third to half of my business every year."
