SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Spyder Fest is in Springfield, but it’s not about the creepy crawlers.

Spyders are a three-wheeled motorcycle and the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds is hosting an event for them.

Oweners and fans of the vehicles gathered Wednesday to kick off the festival.

Riders made the drive to celebrate their vehicles while visiting vendors, enjoying food, taking group rides and holding drag races.

"It's just one of those things that is unique,” says Lamont Bryden. “It's also opened up for a lot of people that don't have the ability to ride two wheels anymore. You don't have to worry about dropping them. It just opened up a whole new way of looking at open air riding."”

There is still time to attend the festival. It runs through Sunday.
