It's time to grab your Hawaiian shirts and Parrothead hats... For the seventh annual Parrothead Bike Night and Street Dance.
Preparations started early Saturday morning on Maine Street between 5th and 6th streets.
The event is put on by the Historic Quincy Business District and TNT Action Sports.
It's known for it's Jimmy Buffet theme and motorcycles but also brings in a good amount of money for several organizations in the city of Quincy.
Executive Director of the Historic Quincy Business District Travis Brown says, "The Historic Quincy Business District and TNT actually split the profits, but TNT's portion goes to a lot of the different volunteer groups that are here tonight... The gold wing riders, The Advocacy Network, Cheerful Home, So, they really spread their moneys around."
The real party didn't get started until later in the evening.
Quincy's own Horndogs band took to the stage at 5:30.
The band Phins from St. Louis also played.
