The festival begins with a kick-off party for the locals on May 2, starting at 6 p.m. Hosted at Emerald Coast Harley-Davidson, the party will feature free food, an on-site bar, and live music by The Good Lookings. The rally itself starts the next morning at 10 a.m. Fort Walton Beach will rumble with the roar of hundreds of powerful machines as bikers roll in from near and far. The event will include a wide variety of vendors, a full bar, food and drink, free concerts each day, charity poker runs, and even a bike giveaway.
On Saturday, Ron Adams & the Memphis Echoes will perform their crowd-pleasing Elvis tribute. On the last day, smoke will rise at the burnout contest. Starting at 11 a.m. on May 5, contestants will squeal tires and burn rubber under the Florida sun, each vying for the best display. Fitting for a Sunday morning outing, there will also be an on-site bar to serve mimosas and Bloody Mary cocktails.
