Halifax, NS – Motorcycle and Powersport Atlantic opens in Halifax this week, March 6-8 at the Halifax Exhibition Centre. With a jam-packed schedule of high-octane features in store for visitors, including a strongman showdown, a tattoo competition, youth riding demos, custom bikes, and more, the event is anticipating thousands of attendees over the weekend.
“We’re getting ready to welcome the crowds this weekend, moving hundreds of bikes and related products into the Halifax Exhibition Centre,” says Scott Sprague, Event Manager. “This event is now entering its seventh year, and the Maritime riding community has embraced the show with arms wide open. We’re anticipating large crowds and an engaged group of bike enthusiasts from all across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and other neighbouring provinces.”
As the only event of its kind in the Maritimes, Motorcycle and Powersport Atlantic will showcase hundreds of models filling the Halifax Exhibition Centre – including top brands of the latest in motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs and more.
