Freistatt Erntefest!

If you have lived in this area for any time at all, you know about this small town German festival that began in 1974 as a harvest celebration, and now has as many as 10,000 visitors on Saturday night!  The festival is a fundraiser for the Lions' Club, and has donated $500,000 to that cause since its inception.  The festival offers authentic German food, polka dancing and a Bier Garten.

There will be live music from two different stages, the traditional anvil shoot, bingo, and plenty of other activities to keep you entertained!

Bring a lawn chair, and be ready to have a great time!

    Is there ever a meeting in Joplin, MO. Springfield is quite a distance for me to travel.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
