Downtown Jamestown Development Corp. Expects Thousands To Fill Streets Of Jamestown


‘‘It makes people enjoy coming to Jamestown — it makes them enjoy being downtown.’’—Lee Harkness, DJDC executive director.

7/7/2006 - Staccato thunder coughs from Harleys, Buells, Indians, Hondas, Kawasakis will fill Jamestown’s streets this weekend as the third annual Thunder In The Streets gets underway Friday.Event organizers at the Downtown Jamestown Development Corp. expect several thousand visitors to downtown for the Friday through Sunday festival focusing on motorcycles with all proceeds benefiting rehabilitation of the former Erie Railroad Station on Second Street.Lee Harkness, DJDC executive director, said if the weather holds out, it will be a huge success. ‘‘It makes people enjoy coming to Jamestown — it makes them enjoy being downtown,’’ Harkness said. ‘‘It will make them want to revisit Jamestown at a later date and perhaps shop at a downtown store they did not realize was there.’’Events kick off Friday evening with performances by the Porcelain Busdrivers and stunts performed by the PsychoBuells motorcycle stunt team. The team will take their place as grand marshalls of a bike parade that will take place Saturday.A 110-mile dice run will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, departing from Third Street and reconvening on Second Street several hours later.‘‘People are moving to communities that are creative and provide a ‘sense of place.’ Events like these provide that environment,’’ Harkness said. ‘‘Thunder In the Streets, being a motorcycle event, brings yet a different crowd then some of our other activities — and these people all come with the idea of having a good time while supporting our local economy.’’Hospice Chautauqua County will have a motorcycle on display as a giveaway and the Fenton History Center will be offering tours of the Erie Railroad Station at select times Saturday and Sunday.For more information, contact Tiffani Reynolds at 664-2477 or visit
