Rally on the River is back in the Quad Cities.
Organizers are anticipating more than 30,000 bikers, and businesses are anticipating dollar signs.
Wednesday night was opening night for Rally on the River, the first time in 6 years since it's been held in Centennial Park.
The four day music festival is bringing motorcyclists from across the U.S. into the Quad Cities.
"There's big shows. It's going to be packed. The businesses are going to be out of control," said Danielle Rentfro, biker at the event.
Despite the flood risk, organizers said they decided to move the rally from the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, back to the riverfront anyway.
"Everyone wanted it back here on the river with the breezes and the river and the nice views," said Event Organizer Jeff Norton.
The manager at Sara Mini Mart right across the street, said they stocked up on gas so bikers don't have to worry about where to go and fill up.
"The gas prices are going down every day, that's looking good too, it's a little aid to the business right now, with the weather going on this summer, and we are looking forward to it being a little better this time," said Sandip Kandel, Manager.
They aren't the only ones benefiting.
Organizers got wind other places are too.
"From what I've heard, all the hotels are all booked solid, which is bringing all kinds of money to this community, and we just like to throw a big party," said Norton.
Rally on the River runs through Saturday, and is expected to generate more than a million dollars for the local economy.
Bikers get in free, and if you don't have a hog it's $10 bucks a day.
