Southern Sturgis is an exhilarating bike rally being brought to the Shoals by Homeless Warriors Charity for a week-long celebration. Not only is the event fundraising for homeless Veteran’s, but it’s bringing a kickin’ Rock N’ Roll festival to the Muscle Shoals area. Given that Muscle Shoals has honorable history and remarkable impacts in the music world, especially Blues and Rock, it’s a must that a festival like this one be brought here.
