Another Successful Thunder Beach Rally

by May 2, 2011 • 5 comments

Thunder Beach Productions, Inc. (TBP) held the 11th annual Spring Thunder Beach Bike Rally. Riders from across the country traveled to Panama City Beach to take part in the most biker-friendly free rally in the U.S. The vendor sponsored event attracted cheerful, playful and bizarre characters from all walks of life.

Local businesses welcomed the high-spirited riders with open arms. Restaurants served the comrades on wheels with concerts, beauty pageants, and karaoke that was wildly entertaining. Frank Brown Park was the main site of the rally, where sponsors of the event catered to the cyclist’s every need. The roaring motorcycles covered local businesses throughout the 27 plus miles of premier beaches.

This was truly a rally to be remembered, and one that has shown consistent growth since its first rally was organized in spring of 2000. For all of us who can’t wait until next spring to participate in the rally again, TBP also holds a yearly autumn bike rally in September right here in Panama City Beach.

They were here and gone in a flash. I hardly knew they were around. Hope they had a good time and hope the businesses benefitted from their stay.

We have made it a tradition to visit during Thunder Beach! There is no place on earth as much fun as riding up and down Front Beach Road on a beautiful motorcycle, enjoying the views, the sunny skies and gorgeous beaches! I love hearing the bikes moving up and down the road in the distance too. It is truly a special time!

Great pictures… but FYI it was the 13th Spring Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally and we are just getting ready for the 11th Autumn Thunder Beach Rally – Sept. 29 to Oct. 2nd 2011… but everything else is correct! The rally in the fall was started a couple of years after the annual spring rally. Really some nice bike photos… you can see why they call it the most friendly motorcycle rally: There are even people who sit in lawn chairs along the side of the road just to watch the parade of bikes up and down the beachfront strip.
