Photo Gallery | River Run Rumbles into Laughlin
An estimated 60,000 motorcycle enthusiasts will be in Laughlin this weekend for the annual River Run. The Laughlin Tourism Bureau says that is a 40 percent jump over last year.
They expect the event to give the town a $40 million boost. The River Run accounts for 10 percent of the revenue for many hotels, bars and restaurants. Several restaurants bring in extra staff to accommodate all the people.
Law enforcement will be out in force along the route connecting Laughlin to Las Vegas.
