March 19, 2017 at 4 a.m.
Several hundred motorcycle enthusiasts rolled out for the weekend at Diamond Don's RV Park, taking part in the sixth annual Route 49 Rally and Festival.
"We've had a good day," Co-founder James Novey said of the annual event. "The weather's been great - we haven't had any issues there."
The festival offered a host of food and retail vendors, a concert stage, biker games and a BBQ cook-off.
Proceeds from the event went toward the Children's Medical Center in Dallas.
"We're hoping to raise $5,000," Novey said, adding the final numbers had not been tallied. "I don't think we're going to make that, but we may."
