Buying Native American Indian art and crafts directly from the men and women who make them can be a highlight of a visit to Northern Arizona.

 You’re not only getting treasured mementos of your trip, but you’re also investing in the continuing traditions of the artists who created them.  Deciding what and where to purchase, and ensuring that the items are genuine, is not always easy.  Four tips are: check the label, question the origins, study before you get there, and ask for documentation.

AHOG (AZ Harley Owners Group) Returns to Williams

April 11th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

Once again about 500-600 HOG (Harley Owners Group) members are expected to take to the streets of Williams, AZ this summer

when the Arizona Harley Owners Group (AHOG) rally returns to town.  The rally will take place from June 5 to 7, 2014. 

AHOG is a statewide organization comprised of all of the chapters throughout Arizona.  They meet yearly to have fun, compete in riding events and elect state leaders for the following year.

Registration for the event will take place in the Visitor Center parking lot near the Babbitt-Polson Warehouse Stage just West of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Grand Canyon Boulevard starting Thursday morning the 5th about 8am.  The rally group’s bike games will take place at the Rodeo Grounds.

 Williams is a friendly town where HOG owners can have a lot of fun.  It’s easy to walk around town, have great rides, and is close to the Grand Canyon, Jerome, and Kingman.

Williams is a great rally venue where HOG owners and their partners can enjoy a great time while spending 2 or 3 nights at Grand Canyon Bed & Breakfast, located in a quiet neighborhood less than a mile from the festivities and with off-street parking.This year’s rally will include bike games, guided motorcycle rides, a motorcycle show, a parade through town, dances and concerts.

Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson in Bellemont, AZ sponsors the Grand Canyon HOG Chapter, which will put on this year’s rally.If you don’t own a Harley (or any other brand of motorcycle) you can rent one for the event at Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson and ride into Williams in ‘style’.  There are other dealers throughout Arizona if you’d like to rent a bike and ride from you home to the AHOG.  You just possibly might fall in love with the machine and experience and buy one of your own.

The public is welcome to attend any of the events during the rally.
