Viking invites you to Greenwood, MS on Friday- August 2, Saturday- August 3, and Sunday-August 4 for the 12th annual Bikers, Blues & Bayous cycling event.

This event has been deemed Mississippi’s largest ride with 1,052 riders in 2018. In fact, BBB was named “Southeastern Tourism Society Top 20 Festival & Event” winner for August!
