Venues build for Sturgis Rally

Posted:

With the Sturgis Rally right around the corner, it's that time for venues to clean, build, and create more space to prepare for the crowds. The preparation theme for Full Throttle and Broken Spoke Saloon is build it bigger and better.

That means stages being constructed, decks made, patios expanded, ticket booths going up, and more space created for the crowds of people coming in. But all the construction hasn't stopped visitors. Full Throttle bar manager Steve Fredericksen says they've had the most pre–rally activity he's seen.

But Full Throttle and Broken Spoke are fully staffed for all the visitors. "Between security, back stage, clean up, construction - 400 people," said Steve Fredericksen, bar manager at Full Throttle.

Heather Walker, the operations manager at Broken Spoke, says they hire around 150 to 200 people for the Rally. "There's a lot of work and we have a lot of dedicated, hardworking staff," said Walker. 

Both venues say thousands of hours of work have gone into getting ready for the Rally.
