Red River to Discontinue Motorcycle Rally

Leaders in the Town of Red River have decided to discontinue the Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally as a result of the biker gang violence which overtook the 2023 rally. Mayor Linda Calhoun said in a statement to the Questa del Rio News, “after the events that happened in May, we don’t believe it’s appropriate to encourage motorcycle gang members to come to Red River. We are a family vacation destination and are not willing to tolerate this type of behavior that puts our guests and community members at risk. Going forward, we will plan an event to honor our veterans and families. We will release details as they become available.”
