HULETT, W.Y. (KOTA) -The Sturgis Rally is primarily a South Dakota event but extends throughout parts of Wyoming.

Decades ago, a local Hulett bar owner decided to offer free food to bikers and this became known as the “Ham N Jam.”

Fast forward to 2021 and the event’s legacy continues and is busier than ever drawing in crowds to the small town throughout the entire month.

“You know, I would say even starting this week we’ve seen the biggest crowds we’ve had in the 5 years I’ve been here. So, we really enjoy this for about a month and it really does help our businesses,” said Hulet Chief of Police Bill Motley.

It’s a community effort to make sure that there is extra law enforcement, traffic directors, and vendors to keep the visitors busy.
