Labour Day Event: Digby, Nova Scotia Rally Short on Stevedore Rodents!


For the tenth consecutive year the town of Digby, Nova Scotia has hosted its Labour Day Wharf Rat Rally. The event features motorcyclists from far and wide descending upon the small town in droves –  some estimates put the number at 25,000.  If you were looking for an event into which you could enter your stevedore rodent, this isn’t it! Unless of course he or she also rides a bike. The rally pumps some $9 million into the local economy.
