LACONIA, N.H. (AP) — Motorcycles are roaring and rumbling through New Hampshire as the 91st annual Laconia Motorcycle Week ramps up.

Thousands of bikers flock to Weirs Beach and the Lakes Region to a week of camaraderie, races, road trips, music and tournaments.

Gov. Maggie Hassan kicked off the event last Thursday by touting its million-dollar-plus boost to the state’s economy. The festivities officially got underway Saturday and Sunday’s sunshine brought bikers out in force.

Motorcyclists will ride to the top of Mount Washington, watch races at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway and compete for honors in events ranging from pool to top tattoos.

The event, which runs through June 22, attracts thousands of motorcycle riders from around the world.
