The final Bike Night of the 2017-2018 season will feature a national act at a temporary location this weekend.

The Cape Bike Night will take place Saturday with the city stage set between Cape Coral Street and Vincennes Street on Lafayette Street. Cape Bike Night is typically held on Southeast 47th Terrace, but was moved because of the streetscape project taking place.

The positive side of having a temporary location Special Events Coordinator Todd King said, is they still have the opportunity to hold the last Cape Bike Night of the season.

"The community is excited. It's one of our most popular events," he said.

The temporary location is a little more wide open in a single street.

"It's very similar to what we have on 47th Terrace," King said.

The April Bike Night will feature two acts, one of which is a national band.

Delta Crossing will take the stage from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and then the Six Bends Harley Slow Bike Races will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The national act, Molly Hatchet, will perform from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

"It's a free concert, so I am hoping a lot of the biker community comes out and has a great rock and roll night," King said.

He said normally Bike Night features local entertainment with a national act performing every once in a while. Typically there is a $5 charge for the national act performance.

"Because we moved locations, we will make it a free concert for this location," he said.

In addition to the music, there will be food and vendors targeted towards motorcycle attire and amenities to put on the bike.

"It's pretty targeted for the type," he said.

King said the 2017-2018 Cape Bike Night has been a great season.

"We are happy to be able to have this event," he said adding that he is glad they were able to find a temporary location with the current construction. "I'm really glad to be able to find a location that will work effectively."

The 2018-2019 Cape Bike Night season will resume in October.

King began coordinating the Cape Bike Night in 2006.

"I think the 50th is coming soon for me," he said.

King enjoys the Cape Bike Night because it is a great coming together of the community.

"It's a unique subculture . . . motorcycles and the free spirit that people have. We put on great rock and roll music," he said. "There is great food and amazing vendors. I think it is great to have it in our town."
