The Harley-Davidson Euro Festival is back; as every year, it’s a momentous event for our commune and the Golfe de St-Tropez.
Its benefits are huge, both commercially and financially, and also in terms of image and reputation. The Euro Festival undoubtedly gives an added dimension to the work we are doing, each in our own way, to revitalise our region and provide its people with jobs, contracts, customers and, indeed, with leisure activities, since for many of us this event constitutes great entertainment.
For those who still remain to be convinced (if there are any), you just have to look at the impressive number of spectators lining the roads on the day of the big parade. Thousands of people applaud this cavalcade of motorcycles that take some of us back to legendary pictures of film stars astride their Harley-Davidsons.
It’s now an unmissable event that all decision-makers in the Golfe de St-Tropez are pleased to welcome and see it made permanent. In the spring it’s also a nice way to start off the summer season on which our region’s economy so much depends.
So, a hearty welcome to all bikers and contributors to the success of this rally. I hope they have four days of festivities and enjoyable experiences on the Var highways in the May sunshine reflected off the chrome and steel of their machines.
