FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- After four days of motorcycle mania, the annual rally Bikes, Blues & Barbeque has come to a close.

Pat Haley and his girlfriend Cindy rode several hours to get to the rally, but they said it's something they wouldn't miss. 

"We like the rides, it's a lot of fun, there's a lot of good rides up here, we like spending time with the entertainment down in the beer gardens, all the blues bands, and the rides in Arkansas are beautiful," Haley said. 
Saturday afternoon (Sept. 26) hundreds of bikes went down College Ave to Dickson Street as part of the Parade of Power. Bella Vista couple Robert and Nancy Stock said the showcase of bikes was their favorite part. 

"It's not a Santa Clause parade that's for sure where they throw candy, it's like a parade for adults and it's wonderful I think it's great," Stock said. 

The Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce estimates close to 400,000 people visited the area for the rally. Organizer Joe Giles said the profits will go to several local charities.
