The annual University of Okoboji Campus Classic Bike Ride drew hundreds of biking enthusiasts who were greeted by founders Don Eckard and Herman Rickter and welcomed by Mayor Don Lamb as they departed for the ride from Milford Saturday morning. Hill Avenue in downtown Spirit Lake was swarming with people viewing the cars on display at the annual Cruise-In Saturday evening. The cars were all polished and gleaming in the sunshine and the streets were filled with admirers Shawn Mayer, a May City native, returned to the area to perform on the Preservation Plaza stage Saturday night. She signed autographs and posed for pictures with her fans prior to the show. The plaza was packed with fans of Mayer and the country music she enjoys writing and singing when she "hits the road" from her new hometown of Nashville, Tenn.
