MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A 240 acre piece of land in Marion County sat vacant for some time, but is now the Swamp Fox Entertainment Complex. They held a bike rally Saturday for a soft opening event.

Event organizers say that the bike rally was a perfect chance for them to work out and organize everything they will need to put on more events like this one.

Bob Hartmann, Owner Swamp Fox Entertainment Complex says, “It’s not here to gander a tremendous amount of crowds, because when we are ready for that we want those crowds to be handled properly and we want them to have a wonderful experience.”

The Swamp Fox Entertainment complex is designed to host anything from a bike rally to a concert. “We’re not just for bikers, we plan on doing a tremendous amount of other events that are wrapped around family, because family is very important to me,” says Hartmann.

On top of events, the complex has a camp site for people to use while visiting from all around. If bikers need any help during the rallies, Easy Eddies is a repair shop right on hand there to help.  

Eddie Ellis, the Founder of Easy Eddies says, “We’re here to take care of Bob’s customers to keep them on the road. If they come up here and they need to charge a system, or loose a belt or whatever or blow a tire, we’re here to take care of them and put them back on the road.”

The owner says Swamp Fox will bring an economic boost to Marion County. He hopes it will bring in over four million tax dollars, while also creating two thousand jobs for people in the area.

The bike rally is going on until October 4th. You can check out all of the schedule of events going on here.

    We'll make it to the 90s again at the beach and the middle 90s inland. With temperatures a degree or two cooler than the last several days, no heat advisories are in effect, but the heat index will still climb to between 100 and 104. The afternoon and evening will see just a 30 percent chance of a stray shower or storm.
