Bikefest Backlash

Tools

by WFXB Fox TV

Despite Governor Nikki Haley calling for the end to Atlantic Beach Bikefest, Atlantic Beach Mayor, Jake Evans, said the city has no plans to cancel the event.

Locals in Myrtle Beach claim that Atlantic Beach Bikefest is the reason for the violence during Memorial Day weekend. The violence at the beach left 3 dead and several injured.

But Evans says that it is unfair to blame Atlantic Beach for the shootings in Myrtle Beach. He also said that bikefest has been an event for more than 30 years, and that it is not his place to cancel the event.
